Incremental Digital Volume Correlation Tutorial

This tutorial explains how to use the new features of the Digital Volume Correlation extension to perform a series of incremental measurements.

This tutorial explains how to use some of the new features (available from version 2021.1) of the Digital Volume Correlation (DVC) extension in order to perform a series of incremental measurements.

When looking at a set of deformed data, the strategy for processing the series will change whether the cumulated strain levels are smaller or larger than 5%.

This tutorial demonstrates the strategy to follow if the cumulated strain levels for the series is larger than 5%, as direct correlation with the reference image can be difficult or no longer possible. It first describes the different steps to process a series of volumes in the deformed configuration, and then looks into the automation of the whole process using the Incremental Digital Volume Correlation module.

For details about the strategy to follow if the cumulated strain levels are below 5%, please refer to the Incremental Digital Volume Correlation tutorial within the Avizo user's guide. 

To follow this tutorial, you should be familiar with the basic concepts of Avizo and of the Digital Volume Correlation extension, or have performed the tutorial dedicated to Digital Volume Correlation analysis to be found in the user's guide.

To reproduce this tutorial, a Digital Volume Correlation license is required.
