“Digital Image Correlation (DIC): From practical applications for model calibration/validation to pushing the frontier for extreme environments”

Dr. Elizabeth Jones

     Sandia National Laboratories
Biography: Elizabeth Jones received her PhD in Theoretical and Applied Mechanics in 2015 at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign under the direction of Prof. Nancy Sottos and Prof. Scott White. After a year as a postdoctoral researcher, she transitioned to staff at Sandia National Laboratories in Albuquerque, New Mexico. At Sandia, her research is focused on digital image correlation (DIC) and is roughly divided between (1) improving techniques to use DIC data for material model calibration and finite-element model validation; and (2) pushing the frontier of DIC to extreme environments. She has been involved with iDICs since 2015 as the co-chair of the Standardization Committee, co-editor of the Good Practices Guide for DIC, and co-instructor for DIC 101.

“Development of nondestructive testing and condition monitoring technologies based on infrared measurement in various wavelength ranges”

Prof. Takahide Sakagami

     Graduate School of Engineering, Department of Mechanical Engineering, Kobe University
Biography: Takahide Sakagami received his PhD from Osaka University in 1988 for his research on 3-dimensional measurement of cracks based on the inverse problem of electrical potentials. He has since been interested in nondestructive testing of various materials based on infrared measurement in various wavelength ranges. He has been developing experimental methods to detect defects and damages remotely and accurately, mainly in infrastructure structures. He has also been developing technologies to evaluate structural integrity based on experimentally measured actual stress distribution. He is active in various academic societies, including serving as president of the Japanese Society for Non-Destructive Inspection from 2019 to 2022.
