Back to DIC Software

MatchID Digital Image Correlation (DIC) software offers non-contact imaging techniques (DIC & Grid) to retrieve mechanical and kinematical data at the surface of complex objects under any kind of loading. MatchID DIC software combines both dense spatial and temporal information, applicable from small to large scales. This allows users to assess and validate the local mechanical behaviour of both materials and structures.

The MatchID platform can be used simply as a measurement tool, or by using the Virtual Fields Method module it can be used to identify materials. Its Finite Element Analysis module also allows for validation of finite elements simulations. MatchID's modular structure allows for a customized platform composition, 100% adopted to your specific application.

MatchID offers a truly open, customizable DIC platform. As a measurement tool, Digital Image Correlation (DIC) is a newly accepted cutting-edge technique used in both industry and academia. DIC allows full field, contactless 3D measurement of deformations at the surface of any type of material under any arbitrary loading.

The MatchID software platform answers the question of "why" and "how" deformation occurs by offering insight into result creation, rather than having you test presumptions, thereby taking Digital Image Correlation to the next level.

MatchID's tagline is "Metrology beyond colors", offering the DIC system of the future where the main focus lies on the metrological aspects of the system. Some of the key features of MatchID's platform include:
** Quantitative interpretation of results focusing on measurement resolution and spatial resolution with integrated error assessment
** Optimal test setups and processing: patterns, experimental tools and automated post-processing
** Customized application development
** In-depth training: annual courses by experts in the field

Supporting design and development by structurally embedding the Virtual Fields Method (VFM), MatchID goes well beyond DIC by offering material identification tools. These parameters then serve as a basis for Finite Element modeling (FEA), leading to a universal challenge in engineering: validation of simulations. MatchID has also developed an FE validation module that creates a full-field, point-to-point relation between simulation (FE model) and test (DIC result). This module thus allows for structural validations of simulations.

MatchID provides an extensive range of solutions for a wide variety of applications:

Quantitative Imaging techniques to assess materials and structures:

** 2D DIC and Grid for basic experiments
** Shape analysis for displacement and deformations of materials and structures
** Grid method based on phase analysis for small deformations
