Digital Image Correlation (DIC) is a powerful technique to provide full-field displacement measurements for mechanical tests of materials and structures. The displacement fields may be further processed as an entry for identification procedures giving access to parameters of constitutive laws. A new implementation of a Finite Element based Integrated(More)
Most of the norms used in the eld of digital image (and volume) correlation to register two images (or volumes) lead to ill-posed problems. One of the frequent solutions is to enforce a restricted kinematics requiring a compromise between the richness of the solution (i.e., the spatial resolution) and the measurement uncertainty. An alternative route is to(More)
Tomographic reconstruction of a binary image from few projections is considered. A novel heuristic algorithm is proposed, the central element of which is a nonlinear transformation ψ(p)=log(p/(1−p)) of the probability p that a pixel of the sought image be 1-valued. It consists of backprojections based on ψ(p) and iterative corrections. Application of this(More)
Most often, Digital Image Correlation (DIC) is used to analyze a sequence of images. Exploitation of an expected temporal regularity in the displacement fields can be used to enhance the performances of a DIC analysis, either in terms of spatial resolution, or in terms of uncertainty. A general theoretical framework is presented, tested on artificial and(More)
The increase in the number of participating countries and the lack of genetic ties between some countries has lead to statistical and computational difficulties in estimating the genetic (co)variance matrix needed for international sire evaluation of milk yield and other traits. Structural models have been proposed to reduce the number of parameters to(More)
The purpose of the work is to extend the use of non conventional tests and full field measurements to the identification of an anisotropic damage law. A Digital Image Correlation technique based on a finite element discretization is used to extract planar displacement fields. The reconditioned Equilibrium Gap Method is then used to retrieve a damage law(More)
The validity of national genetic evaluations depends on the quality of input data, on the model of analysis, and on the correctness of genetic evaluation software. A general strategy was developed to validate national breeding value prediction software: performances from a real data file were replaced with simulated ones, created from simulated fixed and(More)
