Opto-Structural Analysis

John W. Pepi



457 pages




For readers with a working knowledge of the strength of materials, Pepi shows how to apply basic structural deformation and stress analysis to optical systems. First-order calculations are an excellent way to complement the computational design techniques that now dominate the industry, he says, so he begins by providing the tools for first-order analysis in the design concept phase, and only then delves into the intricate details of a full-up design. His topics include stress and strain, lightweight optics: performance error, figures of merit, brittle material, and the linear analysis of nonlinear properties. (Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR)
