Stiffness evaluation focused on coupling effect

Displacement and deformation

  Stiffness is an important index exhibiting how much an object transforms easily by an external force. So far, it has been evaluated only by the displacement as shown in figure (a). However, when we apply a force to the elastic body, it transforms not only the point where the force is given but also its surrounding area. The former works have not been discussed the deformation of the surrounding area. This work discusses the stiffness measurement by considering the coupling effect where the deformation of the surrounding area is included. We newly developped the dynamic deformation measuremnt system, as shown in figure (c), where it is composed of two units: A high speed solenoid valve which controls the air flow for applying force into the object, a high speed camera which aquires the deformation of object with less than 10[ms].
