Abstract

Deformation study of curved engineering and technical surfaces, such as pipes and pressure vessels, has gained much importance in the recent past. Speckle interferometric techniques and their electronic and digital analogs, which are whole field techniques, have been effectively applied for practical nondestructive testing applications over the years. However, little work has been done that discusses the speckle fringe formation with a fruitful theoretical formulation to study deformation analysis of curved surfaces. We propose an extended theory for speckle fringe formation on curved surfaces, which can be applied to the study of curved engineering and technical specimens under various loading conditions such as in-plane, out-of-plane, and out-of-plane shear configurations. Simulated contours are generated by use of finite element models with similar loading conditions, and the data are analyzed and compared with the obtained experimental results.
