Digital Image Correlation (DIC) is a 3D, full-field, non-contact optical technique to measure contour, deformation, vibration and strain on almost any material. The Digital Image Correlation technique can be used for many tests including tensile, torsion, bending and combined loading for both static and dynamics applications. The method can be applied from very small (micro) to large testing areas. The results of Digital Image Correlation are readily comparable with FEA results or strain gauges.
