In three-fringe photoelasticity, the total fringe order is obtained by comparing the colour of the unknown photoelastic fringe pattern with a calibration specimen. Comparison is conventionally done by minimising the colour difference error using the least square method. This can give the total fringe order from a single-colour isochromatic field. This technique, however, leads to misidentification of fringe order in some regions. Some researches have proposed boundary identification technique to remove this error. Whilst this ensures continuity of fringe order data over the domain, this does not provide accurate results for every region. A simpler method has been proposed in this paper using median filtering which can be easily undertaken using any standard image processing software. The method is demonstrated with the help of a simple example of disc under diametral compression. © 2009 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
