Standardisation project for optical techniques of strain measurement

Objective

Prenormative research in the area of strain measurement using optical techniques is proposed. These techniques use a non-contacting approach to the assessment of engineering artifacts subject to in-service loading. The resultant comprehensive stress data allows lighter, stronger, more reliable and safer products to be designed with more certainty. Recent progress in computer processing and chip-mounted sensors has led to rapid advances in optical metrology. The project addresses the lack of standards and reference materials that are necessary for the full benefit of the new technology to be realized. The project is outputs will be optimized methodologies; physical and virtual reference materials; and recommended routes for traceability. A unified approach to a range of optical techniques will be taken with partners both from across the innovation process and from a number of major industries including aerospace, automotive and microelectronics.
