Infrared thermography coupled with digital image correlation in studying plastic deformation on the mesoscale level

Abstract : This paper focuses on a study of plastic deformation on the mesoscale level by infrared thermography coupled with digital image correlation. First, a novel technique for fully-coupled thermal and kinematic measurements was developed, and the common problem of spatial coupling in the multifield measurement was solved successfully using an image registration method. Then the developed technique was applied to investigate the plastic deformation of a pure aluminium oligocrystal specimen in a tensile test. The deformed specimen manifested high strains of type out-of-plane, which were found closely associated with the crystallographic structure. From a metrological point of view, the out-of-plane effect on the thermographic measurement was analyzed, and the pertinent radiometric artifacts were estimated. The source of errors was verified through a correlation analysis between the estimated artifacts and specimen surface profile. Moreover, the out-of-plane effect on the kinematic measurement was investigated, and the relevant errors were analyzed via the correlation residual. The analysis highlighted the role of the microstructure that played in the plastic deformation and showed that grain boundary was crucial in shaping the heterogeneous deformation patterns for aluminium oligocrystals.
