Digital Image Correlation

Digital Image Correlation: The most complete and versatile system available on the market

Digital image correlation (DIC) is a measuring technique of full-field displacement and deformation measurement at the surface of any object. We developed the first open and fully customizable image correlation platform. Holistic approach provides direct access to variables and parameters which influence DIC performance. More, this application is opened for bidirectional integration by using external scripts. This  DIC platform is fully modular, including components for image deformation, performance optimization, error assessment, material identification, model validation, and many more.

All of this make our application the most complete and the most versatile system available today.



Our expertise in digital simulation

Aware of the constraints of traditional measurement systems, we have developed a platform to overcome these constraints and difficulties.

                           Limits of traditionnal systems                                   Avantages of our platform CIN                             
  •  Problem of tests repeatability as soon as there is result changing                         
  • An easy understanding user interface
  • Modification of the result when parameters are changed
  • Reuse of experiment, selection of parameters, possibility of using the non-expert system
  • Difficulty in determining result accuracy
  • Calibration simplicity and flexibility
  • Difficulty in general understanding of result value
  • Calidation of experimental configuration
  • Difficulty in reusing or camparing data
  • Our absolutely unique performance module
  • Difficulty of rebuilding non-elastic strain constitutive laws

The first fully open and fully customizable platform

The entire platform can then be enriched with the universal programming interface. Generally, each entities has its own preferences, its own methods, so its own scripts to handle tests, compare results, draw charts...

Today, it is highly difficult to interfere with existing systems, either to add variables or extract data. Our platform allows engineers to use any programming or scripting language, to be able to create a bidirectional interface with the entire platform.

This platform structurally simplifies DIC approach, makes it universally open for any interaction, language independently, and allows engineers to add their own scripts, do their own post-processing, put their own additional variables into the system, and quickly and easily develop their features.
