The Vic-2D System

Vic-2D can mea­sure in-plane dis­place­ments and strains on pla­nar spec­i­mens. The set­up is sim­ple, for sam­ple prepa­ra­tion only the appli­ca­tion of a ran­dom speck­ly pat­tern is ness­esary. No spe­cial illu­mi­na­tion or lasers are required.





We offer com­plete mea­sure­ment sys­tems for a wide range of full-field in-plane defor­ma­tion mea­sure­ment tasks.

  • White-light sys­tem
  • No cal­i­bra­tion required
  • real-time data pro­cess­ing (> 50Hz)
  • Sam­ple size <1mm and >10m possible
  • Sim­ple spec­i­men prepa­ra­tion using paint
  • Syn­chro­nized load data acquisition
  • Avail­able ana­log out­put for machine control
  • Very high strain and dis­place­ment limits


We also pro­vide com­po­nents as well as cus­tom mea­sure­ment sys­tems for demand­ing appli­ca­tions includ­ing high tem­per­a­ture, high­er speeds, and very small- or large-scale samples.



The Vic-2D sys­tem is used where strain dis­tri­b­u­tions need to be mea­sured on flat spec­i­mens. Appli­ca­tions include frac­ture mechan­ics (COD mea­sure­ment), bi-axi­al ten­sion tests of films, deter­mi­na­tion of strain local­iza­tion around cracks or notch­es as well as many appli­ca­tions in FE mod­el verification.
