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.
