Combining Image Compression with Digital Image Correlation

Digital image correlation (DIC) is a powerful experimental technique to determine displacement and strain fields. DIC methods usually require a large number of high resolution images, and this imposes significant needs on data storage and …


Effect of Filling Pattern on the Tensile and Flexural Mechanical Properties of FDM 3D Printed Products

This experimental study investigates the effect of filling pattern on tensile and flexural strength and modulus of the parts printed via fused deposition modeling (FDM), 3D printer. The main downside of the printed products, with an FDM 3D …

Dynamic Fracture Test of Laurentian Granite Subjected to Hydrostatic Pressure

Dynamic fracture failure of rocks subjected to static hydrostatic pressure is commonly encountered in deep underground rock engineering. The static fracture behavior of rocks under hydrostatic stress has been well studied in the literature.


Modulus of Fibrous Collagen at the Length Scale of a Cell

The extracellular matrix provides macroscale structural support to tissues as well as microscale mechanical cues, like stiffness, to the resident cells. As those cues modulate gene expression, proliferation, differentiation, and motility …


Enhanced Pre-Strain Application for Goodman Data Generated with Vibration-Based Testing

Imparting residual stress is an essential step in the generation of Goodman data via Air Force Research Laboratory’s vibration-based fatigue test. Conventional Goodman data is constructed through uniaxial fatigue testing at a rate of 40 Hz, while …
