The present paper reports on the progress towards the evaluation of the Mesh Free Random Grid Method (MFRGM) for the inverse constitutive characterization of composite materials. The method provides the capability for the remote (non contact) measurement of displacement and strain fields of structures bounded by flat surfaces that deform under various mechanical and generalized loading conditions. The known forward solution of an anisotropic plate with an open hole, loaded at infinity, is used to generate synthetic images MFRG. The inverse problem for determining the constitutive parameters formulated directly on the generalized constitutive law. Performance of the technique is evaluated by the usage of just one frame corresponding to one set of strain state for various amounts of noise. The evaluation is repeated by utilizing frames corresponding to different rotations of the laminate relative to the loading direction. Finally the exceedingly accurate behavior of the methodology is discussed.
