DEFORMATION ANALYSIS application example

Compression test of a glass fibre reinforced wall

Historic walls are reinforced with glass fibre. Q400 3D-DIC system measures the strain distribution during compression tests.

The left image shows the centered crack as overlayed horizontal strain distribution.
The vertical displacement shows the vertical slip between the break surfaces.

This application example shows how crack formation and crack growth can be quantitatively recorded via the strain field by using the digital image correlation method.
