21 21/61 Basic equations or I Equilibrium equations (static) + boundary conditions strong (local) weak (global) II Constitutive equations (elasticity) III Kinematic equations (small strains/displacements)

22 22/61 The Virtual Fields Method (VFM) Basic idea Eq. I (weak form, static) Substitute stress from Eq. II

23 23/61 The Virtual Fields Method (VFM) valid for any kinematically admissible virtual fields For each choice of virtual field: 1 equation Choice of as many VF as unknowns: linear system Inversion: unknown stiffnesses Elasticity: direct solution to inverse problem !

27 27/61 Homogeneous material Assumption: strain field uniform through the thickness Measurement: uniform strain over a « pixel » (N « pixels ») -F/2 F y x

28 28/61 « Pixels » are of same area: Average strain Finally: -F/2 F y x

29 29/61 Virtual work of external forces Contribution of point A Coordinates of A: -F/2 F y x A B C

30 30/61 Contribution of point B Coordinates of B: Finally -F/2 F y x A B C L h

37 37/61 tyityi txitxi No information on t x Distribution t y unknown Filtering capacity of the VF
