Camera calibration: principles and procedures

By Team Eikosim | 22 March 2021

The use of a multi-camera system for metrology and accurate measurements requires the calibration of these cameras. They can be represented mathematically by a projection model, in the form of a matrix, allowing the passage of the position of 3D points to their projection in 2D image space. The process of estimating the parameters of…

The Batch mode: a new EikoTwin DIC plugin

By Team Eikosim | 22 March 2021

In order to continuously improve the features offered by EikoTwin DIC software, EikoSim has developed a new optional plugin: the Batch mode. It enables to launch, through a configuration file prepared beforehand, the pre-calibration, calibration and displacement measurement for several EikoTwin DIC projects in EKT format. This partial automation of the data processing ensures significant…

Technical functionality: selection of the measurement mesh

By Team Eikosim | 10 February 2021

On EikoTwin DIC, the measurements are directly expressed on the simulation mesh. In order to choose which areas of interest for the test are visible to the camera(s), the so-called measurement mesh must first be selected. Indeed, this mesh will be the one where the results will be calculated. It is therefore essential to select…

Preparing your Digital Image Correlation test with Blender

By Team Eikosim | 2 February 2021

This article invites you to care about an unexpected topic: the preparation of digital image correlation tests with Blender. While research articles do not always mention this aspect of digital image correlation measurements, test preparation is a crucial step in the procedure. The aim is to ensure that the images that will be taken by cameras…

Simulation Validate With DIC

Simulation validation with EikoTwin DIC

By Team Eikosim | 14 January 2021

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…

Measurement errors and digital image correlation

By Team Eikosim | 7 January 2021

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…
