Plasticity-induced fatigue crack closure: an investigation using digital image correlation

Abstract:

The present work demonstrates the practical application of digital image correlation (DIC) in measuring near tip displacement fields of fatigue cracks in 6082 T6 aluminium alloy. The experimental work is focused on building from recent work done by de Matos and Nowell to directly measure fatigue crack closure with surface displacements obtained through DIC analysis. In this work, similar experiments are reproduced with extended DIC analysis and further work is performed using images ...
