Abstract

A model calibration technique is considered for the estimation of material parameters in freestanding thin foils. The experimental apparatus is inspired by bursting strength testers for paper, textile fabrics and polymer coatings such as geo-membranes. The procedure referred to herein consists of the following phases. A controlled fluid pressure is applied to the foil specimen placed on an horizontal plane with a suitably shaped hole. The induced out-of-plane displacements are measured by a laser profilometer. The material parameters are then inferred from these measurements through inverse analysis, by simulation of the test and minimisation of a suitable norm which defines the discrepancy between measured and computed displacements. Potentialities and limitations of the proposed method are assessed on the basis of computer-generated “pseudo-experimental” data, wheremodelling errors are ruled out. The identifiability of some industrially meaningful material parameters is established.
