|Title:||On the Use of Shearing Interferometry for Slope and Curvature Measurements of Thin Plates|
|Department / Program:||Theoretical and Applied Mechanics|
|Discipline:||Theoretical and Applied Mechanics|
|Degree Granting Institution:||University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign|
|Abstract:||The method of shearing interferometry is used for the slope and curvature measurement of thin plates. Several methods are proposed for a plate model with a specularly reflecting surface. Slope contours are also obtained for a diffusely reflecting model.
Several adaptable shearing interferometers are discussed. Experiments are performed to verify the feasibility of the methods with emphasis on the use of a Wollaston prism as the shearing mechanism.
