Quantifying damage in composite
vehicle components supports the assessment of structural integrity and
in particular residual
life. A high level of confidence can be achieved
through good quality validation.ADVISE has developed a general Guide to damage quantification.
Validating numerical simulations using experimental data entails the comparison of data rich maps of deformation or strain. ADVISE has developed a generic Guideline for validation that is based on data comparison using shape descriptors and feature vectors.
