Photoelasticity is a fantastic way to see what is usually invisible in mechanics: stresses. It can be used for educational, scientific, industrial and even artistic purposes. However, it is not always easy to understand how it works and with which material. The purpose of this wiki is to give an overview of the different methods to deal with photoelasticity:
We also report this very nice review paper on imaging methods in granular physics. It deals with most of the points detailed in this wiki.

Why should I participate to this group?
We have chosen a wiki framework instead of a classical publication because we believe that this permits a lot of people to continuously bring their knowledge and answer other people wandering about the different methods.
How can I participate to this group?
