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.
IITM Releases State of the Art Software for Photoelastic analysis and Simulation The recent years in science and engineering has seen a resurgence in the use of photoelasticity in diverse fields ranging from agricultural applications to locomotion of organisms to mitigating stresses or identifying defects in 3D electronics. Novel applications in bi...
