Non-Contacting Strain Measurement Techniques in Fatigue Testing of Polymer Matrix Composites

This article presents a short investigation of the benefits of non-contact strain measurement for monitoring and control of fatigue tests on composites. Recent developments in measurement technology offer the means to effectively measure both axial and transverse strain, instantly, throughout cyclic and highly dynamic tests. Several test scenarios are examined which demonstrate potential benefits of current state-of-the-art video extensometry, for strain controlled fatigue tests on thermoplastic composites.

Importance of Medical Packaging Standards

"The integrity of medical packaging is often evaluated with equal attention and rigor as the medical device itself, and should not be considered secondary to the device when it comes to qualification testing. Ultimately, the packaging is a vessel for the drug, device, or product and needs to contain and protect what is inside."

An Introduction to Digital Image Correlation

The benefits of Digital Image Correlation (DIC) include measuring strain without requiring physical contact, viewing full-field data (like thousands of tiny extensometers), and not needing to know where to place the strain gauge/extensometer before a test starts. The following presentation gives an introduction to this optical technique.
