Welcome to the Finnish DIC Day 2024

This one-day event is organised on Tuesday, April 9th 2024, at the Otaniemi campus of Aalto University, to bring together active and prospective users and developers of digital image correlation methods and equipment, to present recent developments in the state of the art and advanced applications, share experiences with the technique and aspirations for using it more widely, and foster collaborations. The event brings together researchers, engineers, educators, life-wide learners, and technology providers, for a morning of technical presentations and an afternoon of laboratory visits and equipment demonstrations, with plenty of time for informal discussions and networking opportunities in between.

Preliminary programme: 

 9.00      welcome and technical presentation session 1

  • Mikko Kanerva (Tampere University): Combining DIC and FEA for composite materials, with examples at different length and time scales 
  • Hendrik Pulju (isi-sys): Thrills of microscopic DIC 
  • Thorsten Siebert (LaVision): High-Speed DIC at micro and macro scale 
  • Guilherme Soares (VTT): Simultaneous measurements of strain and temperature fields in mechanical testing, with DIC and infrared thermography 
  • Tomasz Rusin (Dantec Dynamics): Multicamera DIC: principles of operation and practical applications
