The purpose of the paper is the development of techniques for hybrid experimental - numerical photoelasticity analysis. The general scheme of such analysis is presented. Generation of digital images mimicking the effect of photoelasticity naturally incorporates into the hybrid iterative procedure enabling effective interpretation of experimental results of Investigation Smart structures and provides insight into the physical processes taking place in the analysed objects. Visualization techniques of the results from finite element analysis procedures are important due to several reasons. First is the meaningful and accurate representation of processes taking place in the analyzed smart structures. Second, and perhaps even more important, is building the ground for hybrid numerical - experimental techniques. A typical example of FEM application in developing a hybrid technique is presented in paper.
