Determination of the Matrix of Rigidity of a Composite Material by the Combination of Speckle Interferometry and Ultrasonic Measurements
The characterisation of composite plates used in structural work in the field of aeronautics is approached by associating ultrasound and speckle interferometry measurements. The reduced thickness of the specimens does not allow for gauge instrumentation to measure out-of plane deformation. A system was therefore used which makes it possible to obtain the cartography of the deformations in and out of-plane. This paper describes an application of electronic speckle interferometry in the measurement of through thickness deformation in composites.
