Hybrid Numerical-Optical Methods for Analysis of Mechanical Structures
In conventional approach numerical and experimental solutions are independent and lack of interaction. Because each method has its own drawback, an interactive combination of numerical and experimental methods is proposed. An application of the hybrid method with Finite Element Method and optical metrology is illustrated, which demonstrates the viability of the feedback of experimental to numerical model, or numerical solutions to experimental setup and then improvement and adjustment of mathematical model and experimental setup.
