Many readers of Optical Engineering may find the word photomechanics confusing. It is a term coined by Dr. A. J. Durelli almost 30 years ago (indeed he has a book with this title: introduction to Photomechanics, by A. j. Durelli and W. F. Riley, Prentice-Hall Inc., 1965) to describe a discipline wherein the practitioners use optical methods such as photoelasticity to perform stress analysis of structures under Ilioad. Since then, the meaning of photomechanics has Ibroaderned to include the study of all mechanics problems (e.g., deformation of solids and flow of fluids) using optical techniques.
