Characterisation of Full-Field Deformation Behaviour Using Digital Imaging Techniques
Optical techniques for displacement measurements have become more common in recent years. The current preferred technique is digital image correlation (DIC) which works very well but has limitations for measuring diametral contractions in cylindrical specimens using a standard 3D system. To overcome the limitations of using either a diametral clip gauge or standard 3D DIC, a method has been developed for measuring diametral contractions simultaneously in two directions using a standard 3D DIC system in conjunction with an edge detection algorithm. Results have shown the method to work well.
