The VIC-3D system is a powerful turn-key solution for measuring and visualizing full-field, 3-dimensional measurements of shape, displacement, and strain. Using this method, 3D displacements and strains are available at every point on the specimen’s surface. All systems are customized to your needs, and are available for a wide range of size scales for quasi-static and dynamic events. All systems are turn-key which include all necessary software, hardware, training, and technical support to ensure the system operates exactly as expected.
VIC-3D measures arbitrary displacements down to nanometer resolution (dependent upon the size of the object), and strains from 100 microstrain to 2000% and above are possible with 50 microstrain or better strain resolution. Specimen sizes ranging from <1mm to >50m are possible, and dynamic events can be capture up to a rate of 5,000,000 fps (frames per second). System setup is simple, and only requires a quick calibration procedure and an applied random speckle pattern. No special illumination or lasers are required and there is no contact with the specimen during testing. In summary…if we can see it, we can measure it.
