The major goals of the research project associated to the acquisition and installation of a biaxialtorsion testing system consist of two major tasks 1 studying damage nucleation and accumulation of metallic materials and alloys under multiaxial conditions, including non proportional loading, and 2 detecting and characterizing damage under multiaxial loading using suitable NDE techniques, e.g.. acoustic emission. This research will contribute and intergrate well with the research tasks of the SHM MURI project currently being led by ASU.
