In this paper, we introduce the two-dimensional continuous wavelet transform for the automated strain analysis of the moiré interference fringe pattern. The Fourier transform method has been widely used for automated analysis of an optical interference fringe pattern. However, this method is hardly applicable to the analysis of the fringe pattern, which includes large displacement range or discontinuities. We show the advantages of the wavelet transform method by applying it to experimental results on composite laminates.
