TITLE: Digital Image Correlation in Support of Complex Testing of Advanced Materials
PRESENTED BY: Zwick-Roell
SPEAKER: Fadi Abu-Farha, Ph.D.President @ FADI-AMT LLC1Automotive Industry Manager @ ZwickRoell LP2
DESCRIPTION: This webinar will provide an overview of the state-of-the-art materials characterization with digital image correlation (DIC), emphasizing the significant role of DIC in transforming the way we investigate deformation and failure in these materials. The webinar will present real-life examples, progressing from standard testing systems to more sophisticated experimental setups that are particularly tailored to advanced materials or complex testing conditions. The selected examples will cover several important engineering materials and a wide range of unique experiments and conditions that show the versatility and power of DIC.
In this webinar, attendees will learn about:
Fadi Abu-Farha is currently operating a startup, FADI-AMT LLC, focused on the advanced characterization of a wide range of materials with the aid of optical metrology, particularly using digital image correlation (DIC). Fadi received his Ph.D. in mechanical engineering from the University of Kentucky in 2007. After that, Fadi was an assistant/associate professor of mechanical/automotive engineering at Penn State University and Clemson University's International Center for Automotive Research (CU-ICAR). Fadi's primary area of research was lightweight materials and their manufacturing. He received several best poster and paper awards at multiple events including NAMRI/SME and TMS, and won the Young Researcher Fellowship at the 3rd MIT Conference on Computational Fluid and Solid Mechanics. Fadi is a recipient of the NSF-CAREER Award, the SME Young Manufacturing Engineering Award, the SAE Ralph Teetor Award, and the TMS Light Metals Division Award.
