Abstract
IN THIS RESEARCH WE WILL BE USING OPTICAL TECHNIQUES TO MEASURE THE PLASTIC STRAIN IN METALLURGICAL SAMPLES OF VARYING COMPOSITION (BRASS, STEEL, ALUMINUM). THIS TYPE OF TECHNIQUE HAS SEVERAL UNIQUE ADVANTAGES. SINCE LIGHT BEAMS ARE NOT EFFECTED BY HOSTILE ENVIRONMENTS, IT IS POSSIBLE TO MAKE MEASUREMENTS UNDER CONDITIONS OF HIGH TEMPERATURES OR HIGH RADIATION LEVELS. THESE CONDITIONS WOULD AFFECT CONVENTIONAL STRAIN GUAGES. FURTHERMORE, MEASUREMENTS MAY BE MADE REMOTELY BY "COMPUTER VISION" TECHNIQUES. THIS HAS THE ADVANTAGE OF SPEED, ACCURACY, THOROUGHNESS OF INSPECTION, AND SAFETY FOR PERSONNEL.
