Industrial Applications for Optical Data Processing and Holography discusses modern optics applications in the industrial setting. Holography and speckle metrology are emphasized through numerous examples where interferometry has been applied to gage displacements and velocities in solids and in fluids. Other detailed discussions of optics applications include fringe interpretation, pattern recognition, and the fine points of recording optical disturbances. New, successful techniques are carefully examined to analyze the aspects responsible for their success. The book also features an extensive index that will be indispensable for helping stress analysts locate specific applications. Its detailed reference lists will provide a solid reference resource for engineers and designers seeking additional information.
