    To analyze phase distributions of grating and fringe patterns in real-time, several methods were proposed by many researchers. In this paper, four methods to measure shapes of three-dimensional objects developed by the authors are shown. The first is a phase-shifting scanning moire method. The second is a phase-difference scanning moire method. The third is a phase-shifting method using the correlation of the rectangular brightness of a projected grating and two rectangular functions. The last is an integrated phase-shifting method. These methods can provide accurate phase distributions of grating lines and fringe lines in real-time.

    The principles of these methods and applications to measure shape, strain and stress analysis are shown.
