Dynamic photoelasticity applies the basic photoelastic approach to all aras of elastodynamics, i. e. , stress-wave propagation, vibration and quasi-static quasi-static transient phenomena and fracture propagation. Data analysis is based on a dynamic version of the stress-optic law. Stress separation is possible in special cases, such as free or rigid boundaries, axisymmetric problems and pure shear-wave propagation. Viscoelastic response can be studied by using appropriate model materials and photoviscoelastic stress-birefringence relations. Applications are discussed in the areas of: wave propagation in viscoelastic, anisotropic, rock and layered media; water jet cutting; flaw detection; and dynamic fracture.
