Abstract

The interpolation algorithm plays an essential role in the digital image correlation (DIC) technique for shape, deformation, and motion measurements with subpixel accuracies. At the present, little effort has been made to improve the interpolation methods used in DIC. In this Letter, a family of recursive interpolation schemes based on B-spline representation and its inverse gradient weighting version is employed to enhance the accuracy of DIC analysis. Theories are introduced, and simulation results are presented to illustrate the effectiveness of the method as compared with the common bicubic interpolation.
