EikoTwin DIC

EikoTwin DIC is an image processing software dedicated to the link between measurements and numerical simulations.

It uses a patented measurement technology to provide automatic test-simulation comparison. It allows the determination of model errors and the identification of error sources


  • Image processing (digital image correlation) based on the finite element mesh.
  • Automatic calibration around the mesh.
  • Multi-view (no technical limit to the number of cameras).


  • Many directly accessible fields: displacements, strains, residual (at pixel scale) on the surface of the part.
  • Export of figures that can be used directly in your presentation.


  • Virtual sensors (displacement, strain gauges).
  • Immediate test/simulation comparison based on finite element simulation results.

"Thermal" plug-in

  • This add-on to EikoTwin DIC bridges the gap between kinematic measurements and infrared thermography.
  • Import infrared images directly into your digital model
  • Correlate the results with your thermomechanical simulation.
Plugin Batch

"Batch mode" plug-in

  • This tool multiplies the power of EikoTwin DIC by allowing batch processing of image series.
  • Process all your measurements in a batch process and increase the value you get from EikoTwin DIC.

« EikoTwin DIC is a key tool in our path to make simulation validation easier and accelerate developments while limiting risks. We want the design office and the test lab to speak the same language »

Nicolas Swiergiel

Photomechanics expert

« Importing the measurement results from EikoTwin DIC into Hyperworks was straightforward and easy. This allowed us to make our simulation more predictive very quickly and to determine the correct data set. »

CAE Engineer
Safran Due

« This allows us to be much more confident in the validation of our technologies and will lead us to propose a mature solution to our customers more quickly. »

Digital image correlation for automotive structures


Context In the context of monitoring large-scale production automotive parts, many parts are subjected to repeated tests to ensure their integrity once they are put into service. Thus, the test that we address in this paper is dedicated to the “gust of wind” tests of an opening structure (see Figure 1). Loading tests on a…
