Paper Abstract

This paper describes grating shearography as a technique for direct measurement of in-plane strains and out-of-plane slopes. This technique has many interesting features for mechanical engineering: strains are measured without numerical differentiation, so a good spatial resolution can be obtained; it is also fairly insensitive to vibrations; full in-plane and out-of-plane information can be gathered simultaneously; finally, it is easy to switch from grating shearography to grating interferometry, in order to have also the displacement field. We present the theoretical basis of the method and the preliminary measurements on a graphite/epoxy composite sample under Iosipescu shear testing. Results are compared with FEM simulation.
