Title: METHODS FOR DETERMINING MECHANICAL QUANTITIES ASSOCIATED WITH A DEFORMATION FORCE BY UTILIZING AN INTEGRATED COMPUTATIONAL ELEMENT
Abstract:
Mechanical quantities associated with a deformation force impacting a structure may be determined using one or more integrated computational elements. Methods for determining a mechanical quantity may comprise: optically interacting electromagnetic radiation with one or more integrated computational elements and a target area of a structure, the structure comprising a deformable material in an initial amount and a reference material in an initial amount within the target area; exposing the structure to a deformation force; determining a change in amount of the deformable material or the reference material within the target area, using the one or more integrated computational elements; and correlating the change in amount of the deformable material or the reference material within the target area to a mechanical quantity associated with the deformation force.
