Digital Image Correlation Study on Micro-Crystal of Poly-Crystal Aluminum Specimen under Tensile Load through SEM
In this study, the digital image correlation method(with Newton-Raphson iteration method) is used to measure the in-plane deformation of poly-crystal aluminum. When the specimen is exerted a tensile load, the strain distribution of the specimen surface will be inhomogeneous. The micro-deformation of the poly-crystal aluminum is studied under a SEM(scanning electron microscope), a series of images of the micro crystal are captured during the loading process. By using digital image correlation to analyze the images, the displacement and strain of a micro-crystal are obtained, which provide important data for further analysis of the inhomogeneous properties of the poly-crystal aluminum.
