Non-parametric identification of the non-homogeneous stress in high strain-rate uni-axial experiments Academic Article uri icon


  • Stress and strain homogeneity, in tested samples, is a crucial assumption during a dynamic test. Whenever this assumption is true, the conventional recovery of the mean strain and stress is valid. However, when the stress and strain fields in the sample are not homogeneous, more sophisticated treatment must be considered. Inverse problem techniques are then proposed. Nevertheless, they may yield a non-physical result. In this paper, a non-parametric solution to the problem of non-homogeneity in dynamic tests is presented. The stress field is deduced from the displacement field measured via a Digital Speckle Photography (DSP) technique and a force boundary condition. 2008 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
