Multi-camera DIC system with spatial data stitching procedure for measurements of engineering objects

Marcin Malesa, Krzysztof Malowany, Malgorzata Kujawinska


In this paper we present the multi-camera 3D Digital Image Correlation (DIC) system with the procedure of spatial data stitching. The system diversify a single DIC setup capabilities to displacement and strain measurements of big and complex in shape industrial installations The example application of DIC system that concerns measurements of graded metal plate segments is described and an error analysis is performed in order to prove practical feasibility of the developed system
