Paper Abstract

In this paper, authors present a new application of speckle shearing interferometry (shearography) to a phenomenon known as creep compliance, which is an important mechanical property of viscoelastic materials. Two different sealing elastomers were tested in a short-term creep experiment, applying a constant tensile stress to a specimen. An experimental in-plane shearography setup was implemented to measure directly the in-plane creep strains produced in the tested object. In order to show the effectiveness of shearography for the assessment of this mechanical property, results were compared to that obtained with an equipment of Digital Image Correlation (DIC). It was demonstrated that shearography can be potentially and successfully applied to the creep analysis of these kind of materials. Finally, advantages and limitations of this measurement method are discussed.
