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…

Preparation of 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 a digital image correlation test 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…

Simulation Validate With DIC

Simulation validation with EikoTwin DIC

By Team Eikosim | 14 January 2021

Simulation validation with EikoTwin DIC relies 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 “Model-Based testing” method, EikoTwin DIC allows measuring displacements and strains of the observed parts directly on the simulation mesh. Thus, you will be able to…

Measurement errors and digital image correlation

By Team Eikosim | 7 January 2021

By Pierre Baudoin, R&D engineer at EikoSim 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…

What are good Digital Image Correlation test practices?

By Team Eikosim | 24 November 2020

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…

Hybrid calibration: a robust alternative to self-calibration

By Team Eikosim | 7 October 2020

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…

Speckle pattern size: how to calculate it for your DIC test?

By Team Eikosim | 4 September 2020

By Floriane Soulas, R&D engineer at EikoSim In a previous article, we discussed how to choose the size of the speckle pattern for your experiment. We introduced the necessary parameters to control in order to optimize the size of your speckle for each of your tests. As mentioned, although the quality of a speckle pattern…
