Abstract

Digital image correlation (DIC) has proven to be an efficient technique for non-contact full-field strain measurement. Nevertheless, there have been no previous examples of using this technique to analyse strain in flexible textile fabrics. In this paper, a novel approach is developed based on DIC to monitor strain in textiles. The purpose of this paper is to demonstrate that DIC can be used to obtain full field strain maps from textile. The challenge is to use the weave of textile as the device for correlation. This can allow the technique to be applied to monitor strain in valuable textiles, such as historic tapestries.
