A revolutionary new vibration measurement system attracted visitors to Correlated Solutions’ booth last week at Automotive Testing Expo North America in Michigan, USA.
The VIC-3D High Speed (HS) Vibration Analysis Digital Image Correlation (DIC) system is a turnkey high-speed digital image correlation system that can measure full-field, three-axis displacements during vibration events. Since the acquisition time is very short, the system is capable of measuring operational deflection shapes during transient vibration events as well as the impulse response to an impact. The system achieves resolution in the nanometer range and provides full-field three-axis displacement as well as strain data.
The VIC-3D DIC System has found widespread popularity with scientists, researchers and engineers across the globe due to its accuracy, robustness, versatility, flexibility and overall ease of use.
More recently, there has been an increasing interest in accurately measuring vibration shapes using the VIC-3D HS System, which utilizes high-speed digital cameras. These systems are widely used for measuring surface deformation of materials under high-rate tensile/compression.
The VIC-3D HS Vibration Analysis System takes vibration analysis to the next level by seamlessly integrating the capability to measure transient events with visualization. Since the technique provides full-field displacement data, no scanning of the object surface is required, which results in very short acquisition times. The acquired images are then post-processed to compute full-field amplitude/phase vs. frequency data.
