μDIC: An open-source toolkit for digital image correlation
Peer reviewed, Journal article
MetadataVis full innførsel
We here present a Digital Image Correlation toolkit, formulated as a Python package. This package aims at providing a complete toolkit for performing DIC analysis on experimental data, performing virtual experiments, as well as a framework for further development. A suite of tools for generating synthetic speckle images, modelling of sensor artefacts and deformation of images by displacement fields, are included. The virtual experiments are used as a part of the accuracy assessment of the toolkit as well as for testing during development. B-spline elements are employed for the discretisation of the displacement fields and allow the polynomial order and degree of continuity to be controlled by the user.
