2 2/61 Basic equations or I Equilibrium equations (static) + boundary conditions strong (local) weak (global) II Constitutive equations (elasticity) III Kinematic equations (small strains/displacements)

3 3/61 The Virtual Fields Method (VFM) Basic idea Eq. I (weak form, static) Substitute stress from Eq. II

4 4/61 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 !

5 5/61 Simple example Fuuny shaped disc in diametric compression Isotropic material -F/2 F y x Eps y Eps x Eps s

8 8/61 Homogeneous material Assumption: strain field uniform through the thickness Measurement: uniform strain over a « pixel » (N « pixels ») -F/2 F y x

9 9/61 « Pixels » are of same area: Average strain Finally: -F/2 F y x
