Obviously, the number of isochromatic fringes and therefore the stress level (Eq 5) increases with the flow rate.
It has been shown that certain coloured filters change the chromaticity of the hues used in the Farnsworth D15 test in such a way that the set spans a greater number of isochromatic lines, thus improving the discrimination of those hues.

Colour vision tests exploit isochromatic zones and therefore a change in the spectral properties of the pigment can lead to colours falling away from the confusion lines or a change in the luminance, and the test can become invalid.
As the sample cooled down, the changing stress was measured by counting the isochromatics (i.
