Course Information

Instructor: Kyle D. Gilroy, PhD

Digital image correlation is an image-based, non-contact methodology used to measure the displacement, strain, and/or vibration of a dynamically deforming object. Vision Research is presenting a hands-on course intended for potential and current users of high-speed digital image correlation (DIC). The course will be led by field applications engineer Kyle D. Gilroy, PhD (Vision Research). It is three-day course where users will leave knowing how to:
  1. Operate a high-speed camera
  2. Synchronize high-speed cameras
  3. Prepare an experiment for Digital Image Correlation
  4. Learn how to use Digital Image Correlation software
  5. Learn how to analyze DIC results (i.e., displacement, strain, vibration).

A Phantom Academy certification will be issued to attendees who successfully complete course objectives.
