TITLE: How Effective is 2D DIC in Material Testing REGISTER HERE
SPEAKER: @Fadi Abu-Farha, Ph.D., President, Automotive Industry Manager, at ZwickRoell
YES … 2D digital image correlation can still be very a powerful technique! Digital image correlation (DIC) has become an important tool in materials testing practices for the advanced characterization of materials in a wide range of applications. Despite this, the cost of a commercial 3D DIC system may be a hurdle for many educational institutions and even for some industrial organizations. 2D DIC is simple, inexpensive, and easily attainable, yet it lacks the accuracy and depth of 3D DIC field capabilities. Despite these limitations, there are many testing scenarios where materials deformation is planar and captured by 2D DIC with sufficient accuracy.
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.
