The Vic-2D system is used where strain distributions need to be measured on flat specimens. Applications include fracture mechanics (COD measurement), bi-axial tension tests of films, determination of strain localization around cracks or notches as well as many applications in FE model verification.
The VIC-2D system is a fully integrated solution that utilizes our optimized correlation algorithms to provide non-contact, full-field, two-dimensional displacement and strain data for mechanical testing on planar specimens. In-plane displacements are measured at every pixel subset within the area of interest, and full-field strain is computed with many tensor options.
The VIC-2D system measures in-plane displacements and strains over 2000% with measurement resolution as low as 10 microstrain possible. Specimen sizes ranging from microns to meters are measured easily, and with a built-in microscope distortion correction and SEM drift correction module, the software is the most flexible and powerful 2D DIC software on the market.
And now, included with the latest VIC-2D release, the all-new iris graphics engine brings a host of new functionality including the ability to export high resolution still and moving images with multiple page PDFs or MP4 presentations. You won’t have to leave VIC-2D to achieve world-class data visualizations.
