Paper Title:
Construction of Shape Features for the Representation of Full-Field Displacement/Strain Data
  Abstract

The achievement of high levels of confidence in finite element models involves their validation using measured responses such as static strains or vibration mode shapes. A huge amount of data with a high level of information redundancy is usually obtained in both the detailed finite element prediction and the full-field measurements so that achieving a meaningful validation becomes a challenging problem. In order to extract useful shape features from such data, image processing and pattern recognition techniques may be used. One of the most commonly adopted shape feature extraction procedures is the Fourier transform in which the original data may be expressed as a set of coefficients (coordinates) of the decomposition kernels (bases) in the feature space. Localised effects can be detected by the wavelet transform. The acquired shape features are succinct and therefore simplify the model validation, based on the full-field data, allowing it to be achieved in a more effective and efficient way. In this paper, full-field finite element strain patterns of a plate with a centred circular hole are considered. A special set of orthonormal shape decomposition kernels based on the circular Zernike polynomials are constructed by the Gram-Schmidt orthonormalization process. It is found that the strain patterns can suitably be represented by only a very small number of shape features from the derived kernels.
