The paper presents an inverse procedure for identifying elastic properties of isotropic or orthotropic materials from the full-field measurement of the surface displacements of plates under flexural loading configurations. The procedure is based on a numerical-experimental optimisation process which minimizes an error function defined by subtracting the experimental data from the outputs of the numerical analysis. In each iteration the optimisation process updates the values of the elastic constants in a finite element model of the specimen used in the experimental tests. The unknown parameters are simultaneously identified by a single test and without damaging the structural integrity of the specimen. The possibility of using the methodology for characterizing any-shaped plates was investigated. The applicability and the robustness of the procedure were carried out on aluminum and unidirectional Graphite/PEEK laminate specimens. Phase-shifting speckle interferometry was employed to detect the out-of-plane displacement field of a portion of the observed surface of the specimen.

Abstract

The paper presents an inverse procedure for identifying elastic properties of isotropic or orthotropic materials from the full-field measurement of the surface displacements of plates under flexural loading configurations. The procedure is based on a numerical-experimental optimisation process which minimizes an error function defined by subtracting the experimental data from the outputs of the numerical analysis. In each iteration the optimisation process updates the values of the elastic constants in a finite element model of the specimen used in the experimental tests. The unknown parameters are simultaneously identified by a single test and without damaging the structural integrity of the specimen. The possibility of using the methodology for characterizing any-shaped plates was investigated. The applicability and the robustness of the procedure were carried out on aluminum and unidirectional Graphite/PEEK laminate specimens. Phase-shifting speckle interferometry was employed to detect the out-of-plane displacement field of a portion of the observed surface of the specimen.
