Implementation of Optical based Real Time Strain Measurement:
Digital Image Correlation and Tracking (DIC/DDIT) is an optical method that employs tracking & image registration techniques for accurate 2D and 3D measurements of changes in images. This is often used to measure deformation, displacement, and strain, but it is widely applied in many areas of material science and engineering. The improved computation power of each new computer generation has reduced post processing time but now the focus is to successfully implement a real time process. In this project, the aim is to evaluate a novel implementation of digital image correlation and tracking algorithm as real time strain measurement. Therefore, a novel code has been implemented in CUDA (Compute Unified Device Architecture) for the use of a GPU (Graphics Processing Unit) coprocessor which allows 20X faster processing than CPUs. The CUDA code has been interfaced with experimental control program based on LabVIEW to allow real time 2D full field strain measurement. The stability and the constraints of such a system shall be evaluated and documented as this is crucial for a real time experimental setup.
