The VIC-2D™ System


VIC-2D System Overview
  • The VIC-2D system is a turnkey solution that utilizes our optimized correlation algorithms to provide full-field two-dimensional displacement and strain data for mechanical testing on planar specimens. In-plane displacement are measured at every pixel subset within the area of interest, and full-field strain is computed with many tensor options.
  • The VIC-2D system measures in-plane displacements and strains over 2000% with measurement resolution as low as 10 microstrain possible. Specimen sizes ranging from microns to meters are measured easily, and with a built-in microscope distortion correction and SEM drift correction module, the software is the most flexible and powerful 2D DIC software on the market.
VIC-2D 6 New Features
Below is a list of improvements to the software:
  • Improved data processing speed up to 135,000 data points/sec using a modern PC with a single quad-core CPU.
  • Improved strain algorithms for quicker and more accurate results.
  • Completely redesigned user interface for increased ease of use.
  • New and improved tools for defining AOIs (Areas of Interest).
  • Improved initial guess window interface.
  • Completely redesigned inspector tools for easier data extraction.
  • All extraction locations are now saved with the project, and have click and drag functionality.
  • New “Apply Function” feature that allows the user to enter customized equations to generate new contour variables.
  • New graph widget for displaying multiple data extractions on one graph (points, line slices, circles, rectangles, and extensometers).
  • Results can now be viewed in user-selectable units such as inches and micrometers.
  • Overall improved project saving (extractions, analysis settings, plot settings, etc.)
  • New recent projects menu and thumbnail display on home page.
  • Newly integrated post-processing feature for applying time filters to extracted data.
  • Large project loading performance improvement with faster animation playback.
Applications
The Vic-2D system is used where strain distributions need to be measured on flat specimens of almost any material. Common applications include testing in tension, shear, crack growth, fatigue/cyclic and more. Localized strain fields are computed, displayed, and easily exported for FEA validation.
