This committee was formed in 2015 to promote standardization of DIC measurements, develop guidelines for DIC practitioners, and formulate uncertainty quantification procedures.
One of the main focuses of this committee is the creation and continuing advancement of the document, “A Good Practices Guide for Digital Image Correlation.” The Guide is free to download on the guide page. With the publication of the first edition of the Guide complete, the committee is working on improving and expanding the Guide to be more detailed and to cover more topics. If you are interested in working on the continued development of the Guide, please contact Elizabeth Jones at email@example.com.
Another focus of this committee is encouraging development of standards for DIC measurements within national and international standards bodies such as ASTM, ASME, ISO, and VDI. Currently members of the committee are actively participating with these standards bodies to help guide them in the expansion of their current standards to incorporate DIC and in the writing of new standards.
This committee is also active in the DIC Challenge. The purpose of the DIC Challenge is to advance the practice of DIC through collective efforts that point to optimum methodologies. The DIC Challenge is conducted under the auspices of the Society for Experimental Mechanics (SEM) and the International DIC society (iDICs) under the direction of the DIC Challenge board. The DIC Challenge consists of several specific challenges, including the 2D-DIC Challenge 1.0 and 2.0, Stereo-DIC Challenge, DVC Round Robin, and SEM-DIC Round Robin.
