Abstract

The digital speckle correlation method (DSCM) has been widely used to resolve displacement and deformation gradient fields. The computational time and the computational accuracy are still two challenging problems faced in this area. In this paper, we introduce the radial basis function (RBF) interpolation method to DSCM and propose a method for displacement field analysis based on the combination of DSCM with RBF interpolation. We test the proposed method on two computer-simulated and two experimentally obtained deformation measurements and compare it with the widely used Newton– Raphson iteration (NR method). The experimental results demonstrate that our method performs better than the NR method in terms of both quantitative evaluation and visual quality. In addition, the total computational time of our method is considerably shorter than that of the NR method. Our method is particularly suitable for displacement field analysis of large regions.
