DEFORMATION ANALYSIS application example

Load test of a CFRP Bicycle Frame

Deformation measurement of a loaded bicycle frame made of CFRP (carbon fibre reinforced polymer). The measurement was performed with a Q400 3D-DIC system.

The shown vectors are scaled by factor 20.

This example shows how a 3D deformation measurement leads to a meaningful spatially resolved displacement vector field that is used for the comparison with an FEA (finite element analysis).
