MatchID – Digital Image Correlation

MatchID produces software applications that are designed to provide users with a profound insight into the measurement capabilities and uncertainties of Digital Image Correlation (DIC). Furthermore, it draws upon these unique measurement capabilities to facilitate material identification and model validation.


Digital Image Correlation (DIC) – Analysis

Standard 2D DIC for basic experiments

Standard 2D DIC
  • Only 1 camera needed
  • For in-plane experiments
  • On flat specimens with a perpendicular camera alignment
  • Apply Local (subset-based) or Global (mesh-based) DIC

Stereo DIC : Stereo-vision for more demanding tests

Stereo DIC
  • For any test involving out-of-plane motion
  • For structural component testing
  • 2 camera bases for stereo-vision

Multi-cam DIC : True multi-cam for a complete 360° capture

Multi-cam DIC
  • Direct calibration of 3 or more cameras involved
  • Individually identify and position each camera in space
  • Reduce the number of cameras needed for a complete 360° capture

2D GRID Method

2D GRID Method
  • For analysis of fringe images
  • (much) better spatial resolutions than DIC
  • Perfect for relatively small strains

Configure the direct interaction with the camera (or cameras) through the MatchID Grabber

  • Available for quasi-static experiments
  • Also comes in a high-speed version

The first can be used in combination with a vast array of the most common industrial cameras, whereas the upgrade to the high-speed version allows the Grabber to be used in combination with a range of high-speed cameras.

Run experiments in optimal conditions

The Grabber is a flexible module that allows:

  • Interfacing through the most common methodologies
  • Synchronized data triggering and logging
  • Through some of the most commonly used DAQs

Moreover, it includes easy-to-handle alignment tools as it gives direct metrological information in relation to the applied speckle pattern as:

  • Local histogram information
  • Contrast
  • Saturation
  • Suggested minimal subset size

Synchronise your DIC-experiment with your Test System or perform real-time full-field tracking

Our Live Experimental Feedback (LEF) module offers you:

  • Live control of your Test System through DIC measurements (e.g. strain based experiment control)
  • Real-time correlation to visualise the evolution of your DIC test (real-time full-field tracking)
