Non Destructive Testing (NDT)

An important area of appli­ca­ti­on of She­aro­gra­phy is non-des­truc­ti­ve test­ing (NDT). Defects beco­me visi­ble on the basis of the mea­su­red inho­mo­ge­neous defor­ma­ti­on- respec­tively strain-dis­tri­bu­ti­ons. Bey­ond the loca­li­sa­ti­on, the defects or the mecha­nic struc­tu­re of the object can be fur­ther cha­rac­te­ri­sed depen­dent of the spa­ti­al dis­tri­bu­ti­on. The iden­ti­fi­ca­ti­on of mate­ri­al para­me­ters of dama­ged are­as is pos­si­ble as well in com­bi­na­ti­on with fem-models.
