Abstract

In this article an analysis of two-dimensional (2D) digital image correlation (DIC) data captured over a long period of time is presented, where the case of a 2D DIC setup is not fixed in the same position between consecutive measurements. An implementation of the data merging procedure is described and a proof of concept is provided using example measurements for both: a numerical model and a physical model. An evaluation of the accuracy of the method and main sources of errors are also presented. The developed method can be used for long-term monitoring of different kinds of objects, which is particularly important for the use of DIC technique in application, e.g., building engineering, building control, or power engineering.
