Digital Image Correlation (DIC) is a non-contact, full field displacement optical measurement technique.
It is most often used in the following applications:
- Material characterization (CTE, glass transition temperature, Young’s Modulus, Poisson’s Ratio)
- Sample testing – fatigue and failure (in situ monitoring of displacements and strains)
- Applications where displacement or deformation measurements are needed
- High speed/frequency applications (i.e. crash testing, vibration)
