Abstract

Contour moiré pictures with good contrast of a full size living body are now available. Construction problems, performance, and accuracy of large instruments are experimentally studied. Techniques to minimize the drawbacks of the moiré contouring are developed. The system has been proved to be ready for practical application to full size living bodies.
