Material characterization is a crucial aspect of materials science and engineering that involves the study of properties and behaviors exhibited by different materials. This process aims to comprehend the mechanical, thermal, and chemical characteristics of materials, enabling the selection of suitable materials for specific applications. Various testing methods, such as tensile testing to assess strength, hardness testing to gauge resistance to deformation, and impact testing to evaluate toughness, play a fundamental role in material characterization. Digital Image Correlation (DIC) has played a significant role in enhancing the material characterization approach. Through systematic investigation and analysis, engineers and scientists gain valuable insights into material performance, aiding in the development of innovative and efficient materials for diverse industries.
