The Vic-3D HS™ system allows for measurement of very high speed events. As with all of our Vic-3D systems, surface displacements and strains can be measured in 3D. Vic-3D HS systems instead include two fully-integrated high speed cameras.
High-Speed cameras are very useful for the qualitative assessment of high speed events, however, it can be very tedious to obtain quantitative data from images obtained this way. Marker tracking software helps with this problem, but can only track movement, and does so for a relatively small number of points. In addition, it is normally not possible to accurately measure movements toward or away from the camera.
Vic-3D HS provides all the benefits of 3D Digital Image Correlation in a system that includes fully-integrated high-speed cameras. Both movement and strain can be tracked for every pixel within the field of view. And, since this data is calculated in 3 dimensions, it also includes any displacements directly toward or away from the cameras. All calculations are done quickly and automatically by the included software.
