P_Scope® A Virtual Polariscope

Comprehensive Software for Understanding whole Field Stress Analysis Developed at Digital Photomechanics Lab IIT Madras


Scientific Processing and Simulation

P_Scope® is an innovative software that simulates conventional/generic polariscopes using Jones calculus for eight different problems for which theory of elasticity solution exists. It can also plot isochromatic and isoclinic phasemaps to understand the nuances of Digital Photoelasticity. The parameters governing the problems can be changed to customize the simulation. A variety of light sources and model materials can be selected. Other features include plotting of isopachics, all isoclinics, influence of carrier fringes, zoom in/out etc

The software also has a facility to plot whole field stress component plots. Twenty eight years of teaching experience has gone into the making of the software. Innovative tool to integrate experimental mechanics with the courses such as

Strength of Materials,

Theory of Elasticity,

Fracture Mechanics, and

Experimental Stress analysis

and enhance learning experience. The software is embedded with a laboratory manual containing ten different experiments.
