Identification of Materials Mechanical Properties from Full-Field Measurements: Latest Advances in the Virtual Fields Method

Abstract:

Article Preview

This paper presents a short overview of the state of the art and future challenges of the use of full-field measurements and inverse procedures to identify the constitutive mechanical parameters of a wide range of materials. It concentrates on the so-called Virtual Fields Method (VFM) which is a tool fully dedicated to the processing of full-field measurements. Some of the future challenges are briefly covered here, namely the design of test configurations and the application to damage assessment, high strain rate testing and biomaterials. Some examples are given and the main scientific issues briefly discussed.
