Seminar on Advanced Photomechanics Techniques and its Applications in Industry

To broaden the knowledge of members on automotive technologies, after successfully held serial seminars in automotive fields over last year, DCEA will continue to provide more seminars in 2011. Now DCEA invites the long time friend of Detroit, Dr. Xiaoyuan He from Southeast University, China to give us a talk on photomechanics techniques and its application in industry.

Advanced photomechanics techniques are playing a more and more important role in scientific research, engineering test and industrial inspections, which are based on laser interferometry and digital image processing. The very tiny deformation of the structures and parts is able to be detected by analyzing variations of the phase in laser interferometry or the grey in digital images. The techniques deal with shearography, electronic speckle pattern interferometry ESPI, digital holography, moire interferometry and digital image correlation (DIC). They can be applied to non-destructive test (NDT), strain measurement, deformation analysis and material test, etc. 

Dr. He will also introduce the oversea talent program of Jiangsu province and especially SoutheastUniversity in Nanjing, China.
