The Vic-3D System

Vic-3D is a powerful sys­tem for mea­su­ring and visua­li­zing of shape, dis­pla­ce­ment and strain, move­ments and vibra­ti­ons of sur­faces in three dimen­si­ons. Vic-3D is a com­ple­te, turn-key sys­tem. It includes all neces­sa­ry hard­ware and the most up-to-date soft­ware by Cor­re­la­ted Solu­ti­ons. Vic-3D is based on the prin­ci­ple of Digi­tal Image Cor­re­la­ti­on. Using this method, actu­al 3D object sur­face dis­pal­ce­ment and strains (e. g.  the Lagran­gi­an strain ten­so) is mea­su­red and is available at every point on the specimen’s surface.



Vic-3D can mea­su­re arbi­tra­ry dis­pla­ce­ments and strains from 50 micros­train to 2000% strain and abo­ve, for spe­ci­men sizes ran­ging from <1mm to >100m. Set­up is simp­le, requi­ring only a quick, fle­xi­ble cali­bra­ti­on pro­ce­du­re, and an appli­ed ran­dom speck­le pat­tern. No spe­cial illu­mi­na­ti­on or lasers are requi­red. And, no spe­ci­men cont­act is requi­red during testing.

System Features

Our sys­tems and ana­ly­sis soft­ware are desi­gned with the user in mind and are simp­le to set-up, cali­bra­te and ope­ra­te. Some of the fea­tures of our sys­tems include:

  • Ver­sa­ti­li­ty and Con­ve­ni­ence: With our extre­me­ly por­ta­ble Vic sys­tems, data can be coll­ec­ted in a wide ran­ge of set­tings with ease. Results can be pro­ces­sed on-the-spot, or data can be expor­ted for ana­ly­sis in the con­ve­ni­ence of your office. And, pro­ces­sing can be done on any Win­dows PC with fle­xi­ble floa­ting licenses.
  • Soft­ware Inte­gra­ti­on and Ease of Use: The Vic soft­ware fami­ly is extre­me­ly easy to use, and pro­vi­des a user inter­face con­sis­tent with all the other appli­ca­ti­ons you use. Our soft­ware includes powerful tools for visua­liza­ti­on. And, you can copy and pas­te all graphs and plots direct­ly into your favo­ri­te soft­ware to gene­ra­te reports.
  • Per­for­mance and Accu­ra­cy: The Vic image cor­re­la­ti­on algo­rith­ms are accu­ra­te and extre­me­ly fast. In fact, real-time pro­ces­sing can be achie­ved using a modern, con­su­mer, quad-core pro­ces­sor. This saves you valuable time, and ensu­res relia­ble results.
  • Expe­ri­ence, Know­ledge, Tech­ni­cal Sup­port: The Cor­re­la­ted Solu­ti­ons engi­nee­ring team includes the peo­p­le who inven­ted image cor­re­la­ti­on and wri­tes the soft­ware. Isi-sys GmbH build the sys­tems and pro­vi­de all the tech­ni­cal sup­port. We have the expe­ri­ence to tack­le the most chal­len­ging appli­ca­ti­ons, and help you get the most out of your system.
