photoelasticity
\\“+\ noun
Etymology: International Scientific Vocabulary phot- + elasticity
: the property exhibited by transparent isotropic solids of becoming doubly refracting when subjected to either tensile or compressive stress making possible a detailed study of the stress distribution from the patterns observed when the solid is examined in a polariscope
