Image-based Solid Mechanics
Full-field mapping is a very effective way to study and quantify deformation and failure processes in materials. Using advanced measurement techniques, in combination with image processing software and finite element modelling, we provide a truly integrated approach to materials assessment and characterisation.
We are particularly active users of UK and international multiuser neutron and synchrotron facilities and in-house X-ray tomography systems. We combine the large datasets acquired from these facilities, along with finite element analysis, to help solve industrial problems.
