A combined experimental-numerical framework is presented in order to validate computations at the microscale. It is illustrated for a flat specimen with two holes, which is made of cast iron and imaged via in situ synchrotron laminography at micrometer resolution during a tensile test. The region in the reconstructed volume between the two holes is analyzed via Digital Volume Correlation (DVC) to measure displacement fields. Finite Element (FE) simulations, whose mesh is made consistent with the studied material microstructure, are driven by measured Dirichlet boundary conditions. Damage levels and gray level residuals for DVC measurements and FE simulations are assessed for validation purposes.



This work was performed within the COMINSIDE project funded by the French Agence Nationale de la Recherche (ANR-14-CE07-0034-02 grant). We also acknowledge the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility for provision of beamtime at beamline ID15, experiment ME 1366. It is also a pleasure to acknowledge the support of BPI France (“DICCIT” project), and of the Carnot M.I.N.E.S institute (“CORTEX” project). M. Kuna and L. Zybell from IMFD, TU Freiberg, are thanked for materials supply and machining as well as for scientific discussions.
