Abstract

Computer-aided engineering systems rely on constitutive models and their parameters to describe the material behaviour. The identification process, however, grows in complexity for more elaborated material models, increasing the number of experimental tests needed, therefore time and cost consuming. Recently, with the development of digital image technology, there has been a growing interest in the use of full-field deformation measurements. This advancement has highlighted a new methodology on inverse identification techniques such as the finite element model updating method. This work aims to identify orthotropic linear elastic constitutive parameters of Pinus pinaster Ait. wood based on a single uniaxial compressive experimental test. Clear wood specimens oriented in the radial-tangential plane were used and tested under quasi-static loading condition. Full-field displacement and strain maps were obtained using digital image correlation and used to simultaneously identify the whole set of elastic properties through finite element model updating methodology.
