Vic-3D is a powerful system for measuring and visualizing of shape, displacement and strain, movements and vibrations of surfaces in three dimensions. Vic-3D is a complete, turn-key system. It includes all necessary hardware and the most up-to-date software by Correlated Solutions. Vic-3D is based on the principle of Digital Image Correlation. Using this method, actual 3D object surface displacement and strains (e. g. the Lagrangian strain tenso) is measured and is available at every point on the specimen’s surface.
Vic-3D can measure arbitrary displacements and strains from 50 microstrain to 2000% strain and above, for specimen sizes ranging from <1mm to >100m. Setup is simple, requiring only a quick, flexible calibration procedure, and an applied random speckle pattern. No special illumination or lasers are required. And, no specimen contact is required during testing.
Our systems and analysis software are designed with the user in mind and are simple to set-up, calibrate and operate. Some of the features of our systems include:
- Versatility and Convenience: With our extremely portable Vic systems, data can be collected in a wide range of settings with ease. Results can be processed on-the-spot, or data can be exported for analysis in the convenience of your office. And, processing can be done on any Windows PC with flexible floating licenses.
- Software Integration and Ease of Use: The Vic software family is extremely easy to use, and provides a user interface consistent with all the other applications you use. Our software includes powerful tools for visualization. And, you can copy and paste all graphs and plots directly into your favorite software to generate reports.
- Performance and Accuracy: The Vic image correlation algorithms are accurate and extremely fast. In fact, real-time processing can be achieved using a modern, consumer, quad-core processor. This saves you valuable time, and ensures reliable results.
- Experience, Knowledge, Technical Support: The Correlated Solutions engineering team includes the people who invented image correlation and writes the software. Isi-sys GmbH build the systems and provide all the technical support. We have the experience to tackle the most challenging applications, and help you get the most out of your system.
