Sources of measurement errors with digital image correlation

By Team Eikosim | 17 May 2021

By Clara Minguet, Research engineer at EikoSim In digital image correlation as in any measurement process, errors affect measured data. The characteristic of this method lies in the direct dependency between the test and the measurement error [1,2,3]. Indeed, errors need to be estimated for every new test. These errors can be classified in two…
