Paper Abstract

There are no international standards or norms for the use of optical techniques for full-field strain measurement. In the paper the rationale and design of a reference material and a set of standarized materials for the calibration and evaluation of optical systems for full-field measurements of strain are outlined. A classification system for the steps in the measurement process is also proposed and allows the development of a unified approach to diagnostic testing of components in an optical system for strain measurement based on any optical technique. The results described arise from a European study known as SPOTS whose objectives were to begin to fill the gap caused by a lack of standards.
