Application of the 3D Digital Image Correlation to the Analysis of Deformation of Joints Welded With the FSW Method After Shot Peening


The three dimensional Digital Image Correlation (3D DIC) method is used for measurements of deformations and displacement in plane elements exposed to loading. The paper presents the experimental tests of an application of the ARAMIS system to the analysis of deformation of joints welded with the FSW method after shot peening treatment. The butt joints were made of 2024-T3 aluminum alloy sheets with the thickness of 1 mm, which next were peened with glass beads about granulation in range 500 ÷ 900 µm. Tests of residual stresses by X-ray diffraction were also carried out. The aim of the study was to analyze the impact of shot peening on the value of stresses and the location of deformations in butt joints.
