Project Objectives




1.       The development of physical reference materials for speckle techniques, shearography, moiré, photoelasticity, and thermoelasticity

2.       The design and construction of simulated, virtual reference materials to include: simulated data, and synthesised fringe patterns with and without random or systematic noise. 

3.       Definition of recommended data formats for image data, numerical data, and processed data for full-field optical techniques of strain measurement.

4.       Optimisation of methodologies for the use of unified reference materials and for the practical application of speckle techniques, shearography, moiré, photoelasticity, and thermoelasticity. 

5.       Liaison with international bodies to ensure recognition of the measurement procedures and reference materials developed

6.       Identification of routes for traceability of calibrations.
