Heterogenous void growth revealed by in situ 3-D X-ray mocrotomography using automatic cavity tracking

Abstract: Ductile fracture by nucleation, growth and coalescence of internal voids is the dominant fracture mechanism in metals at ambient temperature. Micromechanics-based models for each elementary mechanism have been developed and enhanced over the past 40 years, allowing microstructure-informed failure predictions essentially assuming homogeneous damage evolution.

Compressive Acquisition of Sparse Deflectometric Maps

Abstract: Schlieren deflectometry aims at measuring deflections of light rays from transparent objects, which is subsequently used to characterize the objects. With each location on a smooth object surface a sparse deflection map (or spectrum) is associated.
