The PhotoStress® analysis is composed of a reflection polariscope and PSCalc®
computer software that enables the user to store and process LF/Z-2 readings
of stress and strain.
A variety of photoelastic coatings may be applied on a wide range of materials,
with simple or complex shapes.
The coating displays the strains (or stresses) in a colourful and informative
pattern, which immediately reveals the overall stress distribution and pinpoints
highly stressed areas.
