Development of the Auto Mesh Generation Program for a Digital Image Correlation Method
Since the method of performing displacement measurement and stress assessment of material by non-contact comes to capture the spotlight, study of the digital image correlation method which adopted the pattern-matching method for asking for displacement by deformation of a surface speckle pattern has been advanced. When the configuration for an analysis was settled in the rectangle and the square region, the whole-field mesh generation was also possible, but when it became a complicated configuration, the background etc. entered and mesh generation was affected. In order to solve such a problem, even if the object for an analysis was a complicated configuration, it aimed at generating a mesh automatically and obtaining appropriate analysis output in the displacement analysis and stress analysis using the generated mesh. In addition, the validity of the result was verified by the comparison with the finite element method. By this study, the convenience and availability of the digital image correlation method was improved remarkably, and it became clear to become a leading tool in health monitoring.
