This book presents a sytematic approach to contemporary phototelasticity with particular emphasis on stress analysis in glass. A review of different kinds of residual stresses in glass is presented. Besides traditional photoelastic techniques, differential refractrometry for stress determination on the surface of flat glass and integrated photoelasticity for stress determination in glass articles of complicated shape are considered in detail. Original photoelastic apparatus and corresponding measurement techniques as well as stress calculation algorithms are described. Many practical examples illustrate the possibilities of modern photoelasticity for stress measurement in flat glass, containers, tumblers, tubes, optical fibres and fibre performs etc. The book can be considered as a textbook for a specialist in glass industry who wants to check the quality of products or tries to optimize the production process parameters from the point of view of the residual stresses. Furthermore, the book gives a number of new nondestructive methods which have not been described in earlier books on photoelasticity.
