Description/Abstract

The paper describes initial work on using 2D digital image correlation (DIC) and
thermoelastic stress analysis (TSA) to obtain data from edge cracks in cross-ply laminates. It is
demonstrated that detailed data related to the crack tip stresses can be obtained using TSA. The
work reveals some of the limitations experienced when using DIC in applications where high spatial
resolution is required. A detailed discussion is provided along with an outline for future work.
