Material characterization has not fundamentally changed since the first documented test by Leonardo da Vinci 500 years ago. The theme of this research is to elucidate mechanical response of materials by creating an environment that automates the characterization process by creating a mechatronic system which imposes multi-field and domain constraints controlled via feedback determined by an optimization algorithm needed to satisfy the data-driven environment required by the simulation based design.

|The Xylotron: A Field-Deployable Machine-Vision Wood Identification System|
The Xylotron is a machine-vision-based wood identification system that uses a custom-designed wood imaging device (the Xyloscope), image analysis, and statistical processing software run from a laptop/netbook. With it, users can identify over 150 spe ...
