b) Photographs experimentally taken utilizing dynamic photoelasticity in conjunction with high-speed cinematography show the time-dependent isochromatic fringe patterns (distributions of [[tau].
0]) were obtained from the isochromatic ring diameters using the following equation:
Because of the use of white light, the isochromatic fringe pattern appeared as a series of colored bands (Fig.
The H-W Type A displays specified signal colours, approved by the CIE, but the FALANT displays red, yellow-green and yellowish-white lights that have x, y chromaticity co-ordinates within a common protan/deutan isochromatic zone.
Under polarized light, flow induced molecular anisotropy produces multiple retardation orders of the isochromatic fringes, which are related to the birefrmngence as:
Thresholds that define red-green (RG) and blue-yellow (BY) sensitivity, within the neutral isochromatic zone, are plotted as x, y chromaticity co-ordinates in the CIE chromaticity diagram (1931).
