Simulation validation with EikoTwin DIC rely heavily on image processing. Image analysis methods provide full-field test data, that can be used to validate and improve your simulation. Using the unique method of “Model-Based testing”, EikoTwin DIC allows to measure displacements and strains of the observed parts directly on the simulation mesh. Thus, you will be…

When conducting a test campaign instrumented by digital image correlation, it must be possible to determine the characteristic measurement error for the quantities of interest studied (measured displacement or strain). This analysis is essential to know whether the measurement made is indeed the desired “signal” and not the measurement “noise”. All measurements must be related…

Importance of a good implementation of digital image correlation tests When performing a test by using Digital Image Correlation (DIC), many parameters must be taken into account: brightness, speckle pattern, camera placement. All these steps are essential to achieve the best possible images, in order to get the maximum information from them. Indeed, neglecting one…

Introduction This article is written as a complement to the article on good calibration practices recently published on our website. In general, it is very often possible to calibrate the camera system in EikoTwin DIC thanks to the knowledge of the geometry of the part, and of the correspondence between points of the model and…

To provide accurate digital image correlation (DIC) results, the EikoTwin-DIC software must first calibrate the camera system. This is made using images of the structure in its reference state (unloaded). Using these images, the software determines the intrinsic parameters (the cameras focal lengths, optical centers, skews) and extrinsic parameters (camera positions and orientations in the…

Version 1.2 of EikoTwin DIC is available ! Here is a short-list of the main updates : EikoTwin DIC welcomes hybrid calibration! More robust (especially in the case of near-plane specimens), this new technique allow to calibrate separately your cameras intrinsic and extrinsic parameters, thanks to a one-of-a-kind calibration target. For more information, please contact…
