Experimental And Demonstration Polariscope.
Experimental And Demonstration Polariscope
It is placed on an overhead projector
(not supplied), with the image projected on to a screen, and, used
either in a laboratory or a lecture theatre, allows a striking
demonstration of the stress fields in the loaded models.
It is also designed for quantitative work for tensile, compressive or
A system – unique to this unit – also allows the simultaneous rotation
of the polarizer and the analyser for the isoclinal lines study.
The Polariscope consists of the following elements :
A model-loading frame.
An elastic load-measuring device, which uses a steel spring beam, and a
micrometer dial gauge.
The device has a linear deflexion/load relation-ship.
A rotatable circular polarizing unit, in a graduated mount, carried on
runners under the loading frame.
A quarter ware plate.
A rotatable circular analyser can be rotated through 180°.
The three units are carried on a pillar integral with the loading frame.
The polarizer and the analyser are coupled so that they may turn
