Project:  When Digital Image Correlation Meets Machine Learning
Disciplines:  Mechanical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Aerospace Engineering
Mentor:  Jin Yang, Assistant Professor, (EAS), jin.yang@austin.utexas.edu, Phone: 512-471-1486
Mentor URL:  https://sites.utexas.edu/yang/  (opens in new window)
Background:  NOTE: This project is being offered by a Caltech alum and is open only to Caltech students. The project will take place at the University of Texas, Austin, in Austin, Texas.
Description:  Leveraging state-of-the-art machine learning and data-driven methods to improve 2D and 3D full-field deformation measurement (e.g., digital image correlation, digital volume correlation, particle tracking) and other material characterization experimental techniques. Students will perform either hands-on mechanical characterization experiments or develop state-of-the-art machine learning-based computational methods.
