Full-Field Optical Strain Measurement Systems for Materials and Structures Certification


Full-field optical strain is crucial for composites materials and structures. With the complexity of materials and designs, single-point sensors (strain and clip gages) are no longer relevant. Small urban air mobility (UAM/AAM) companies need to be able to validate their complex composite materials and structures with validated methods to the FAA. The FAA wants to make it easier for these small companies to navigate the certification process in what the FAA Director of Aircraft Certification described as a “New Golden Age of Aerospace.”

In this 60-minute Webinar, you will learn what a full-field optical strain measurement system is and how this technology provides verified full-field measurements.

A Q&A session follows the technical presentation.
