Abstract

In this paper an account of the production of the color fringes in photoelastic experiments is given in detail.

In Part I the equation governing the reduction in energy transmission for given wave lengths and retardations is developed.

In Part II some influences are discussed which modify the final light distribution but which, either owing to the present lack of experimental data or for some other reason, have been neglected in the calculations.

In Part III a detailed color analysis is made of the fringes produced in models with stresses giving retardations up to 2μ.
