ADVISE is a pre-normative project for experimental validation of
simulations of dynamic events using full-field optical methods of
deformation measurement. Optical techniques are powerful tools for the
evaluation of the performance, reliability, and safety of primary
structures and for validating their computer design and simulations.
The objectives of the current project are to address complex dynamic
analysis and to use full-field data from experiments to validate in a
quantitative manner numerical simulations. Dynamic events are
especially important in safety aspects of the transportation industry.
Whilst in engineering modelling the analysis of homogeneous materials
subject to impact has become fairly routine, recent advances have been
made in modelling the impact of two-dimensional composites and
three-dimensional analysis is under development. The exciting
opportunities to bring together advances in optical techniques with the
developments in the modelling of composites in order to accelerate the
latter and establish high levels of confidence through rigorous
validation lead to the objectives of the project:
- Development of reference materials that allow traceability and
calibration of full-field optical methods of deformation
measurement in cyclic, transient and non-linear dynamic events;
- Optimisation of methodologies for both optical measurement and computational modelling and simulation of non-linear,
transient dynamic events;
- Contributions to standardisation activity for experimental validation of dynamic simulations.
unified approach throughout the design, simulation and validation
processes is being taken. Partners include research laboratories,
finite element analysis experts, instrument suppliers, and industrial
end-users from the aerospace and automotive sectors.
