A new six-camera Digital Image Correlation (DIC) system arrived at the UMinho laboratory last week. The Stand4Heritage project will use this technology to acquire and study data from the experimental tests that will be performed on the shaking table.
Digital Image Correlation (DIC) is a full-field image analysis method based on grey value digital images, thanks to which it is possible to determine displacement and strain fields. This technique affords the study of many types of tests, from a micro-scale to larger areas. The presence of the six cameras allows a three-dimensional and 360° view of the object under examination, while the excellent performance of these cameras also makes it possible to acquire a very high number of frames per second, up to 150 Hz.
The first tests with the DIC technology were already performed within the Stand4Heritage project, stay in contact to know more!
