Technical functionality: selection of the measurement mesh

By Team Eikosim | 10 February 2021

By Clara Minguet and Lucas Angénieux, Research engineers at EikoSim 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…

Simulation Validate With DIC

Simulation validation with EikoTwin DIC

By Team Eikosim | 14 January 2021

By Florent Mathieu, Ceo of EikoSim 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…

Mastering self-calibration of cameras with EikoTwin DIC

By Team Eikosim | 10 July 2020

By Lucas Angénieux, Research engineer and Pierre Baudoin, R&D engineer at EikoSim To provide accurate Digital Image Correlation (DIC) results, the EikoTwin DIC software must first calibrate the camera system. The use of the part under study as a reference allows a self-calibration of the cameras, specific to EikoTwin DIC. This is made using images…

What is a good speckle pattern DIC?

By Team Eikosim | 19 March 2020

By Clara Minguet, Research engineer at EikoSim Concerned about making a new speckle pattern for you DIC experiment? In another article, we talked about the different techniques for creating a speckle pattern in digital image correlation, including the ability to vary the size and nature of the spots projected on the piece. But what size should…

Detection monitoring of cracks with Digital Image Correlation: a choice tool

By Team Eikosim | 19 December 2019

By Floriane Soulas, R&D engineer at EikoSim Context Some structures have a long service life from commissioning to replacement. These structures, when they have a fundamental role, must be able to maintain their physical integrity throughout their service life. To do this, it is essential to ensure their reliability over time. In the case of such…
