In situ experiments and Digital Volume Correlation

5th July 2022, 9:00 am

This course allows attendees to extract the hidden mechanical information from volumes images acquired during a deformation process of a material. This topic is of great interest as the 4D imaging community is growing considerably with a huge amount of data that are generated at a fast rate.   The training is organised in two parts: theory (0.5 day) and computer-based practical works (1.5 day) using the XDigitalVolumeCorrelation extension in the Thermo Scientific™ Amira-Avizo Software 3D where two solutions are implemented (a classic subset based approach and a more robust global approach). At the end of the second day, the users are invited to practise on their own dataset with the help of the trainers.

Who should attend?
Researchers working in the field of mechanics, physics, and materials science using 3D iResearchers working in the field of mechanics, physics, and materials science using 3D imaging techniques such as X-ray computed tomography who are interested to (i) compute 3D full-field displacements and strains for linking the microstructure to the mechanical/physical behaviour, (ii) use the DVC measured data to feed/validate finite element models. The attendees are requested to bring their own laptop to practise on the XDigitalVolumeCorrelation extension (free trial licence will be provided).

Registration: Email Sarah Batts ( to sign up. Courses generally fill up very quickly and places are allocated on a first come first serve basis. For further information on these training courses, please visit the Training page on 3Dmagination’s website.

Cost: £400 + VAT for academics, students, postdocs & government, £800 + VAT for Industry attendees.
