Quality assessment of speckle patterns for digital image correlation
TLDR
We study the efficiency of a speckle pattern and its influence on the measured inplane displacements with respect to the subset size. Expand

Crushing and energy absorption performance of different geometrical shapes of small-scale glass/polyester composite tubes under quasi-static loading conditions
Abstract This paper presents the quasi-static crushing performance of nine different geometrical shapes of small-scale composite tubes. The idea is to understand the effect of geometry, dimension andExpand

Parametric study of crushing parameters and failure patterns of pultruded composite tubes using cohesive elements and seam, Part I: Central delamination and triggering modelling
Typically, most brittle composite tubes exhibit circumferential delamination, lamina bending, axial cracking and brittle fracture when subjected to static and dynamic loading conditions. In thisExpand
