Visualization of Localization in Grain Skeletons with Particle Image Velocimetry



An optical method called Particle Image Velocimetry is well-suited to observe strain localization in plane strain conditions of granular bodies. A detailed description of different deformation states can be obtained. The experimental data can be used for the verification and physical interpretation of numerical models.
