Experimental investigation of the coupled magneto-mechanical response in magnetorheological elastomers

Magnetorheological elastomers (MREs) are materials made of a soft elastomer matrix filled with magnetizable particles. These flexible composites that deform in response to an externally applied magnetic field are of special interest in advanced …

A Novel Image-based Ultrasonic Test to Map Material Mechanical Properties at High Strain-rates

An innovative identification strategy based on high power ultrasonic loading together with both infrared thermography and ultra-high speed imaging is presented in this article. It was shown to be able to characterize the visco-elastic behaviour of …


Residual Strains using Integrated Continuous Fiber Optic Sensing in Thermoplastic Composites and Structural Health Monitoring

The evolution of spatially resolved internal strain/stress during the manufacturing of thermoplastic composites and subsequent relaxation from water intake are evaluated using an in-situ fiber optic sensor corresponding to a coated optical glass …


Two-Dimensional Mapping of In-plane Residual Stress with Slitting

This paper describes the use of slitting to form a two-dimensional spatial map of one component of residual stress in the plane of a two-dimensional body. Slitting is a residual stress measurement technique that incrementally cuts a thin slit …


Full-Field Deformation Measurements in Liquid-like-Solid Granular Microgel Using Digital Image Correlation

This paper presents the experimental characterization of the in-plane deformation field at any depth within a granular support medium (GSM) called Carbomer 940 using digital image correlation (DIC) and particle image velocimetry (PIV). A method …
