This package is a functional approach to DIC, where a polynomial can be fit to a displacement field. Typically, solutions are reached by finding a displacement vector for each of the intial pixels, creating a strain field. A functional approach would provide as much resolution that was added with polynomial coefficents as well as time derivatives, allowing for construction of strain rate plots. Fields such as SHPB testing (my background) are very interested in strain rate, and strain rate maps would be very interesting from a testing perspective.
To run, download julia, run add
Then, in the julia REPL in package mode run
test DIC to run the tests.
To develop run
dev --local https://github.com/bhalonen/DIC.jl.git.
julia --project in the cloned directory. In package mode run
One issue may be the narrow window in which convergence actually occurs in. To stablize the functional approximation, perhaps a traditional FFT approach could be used to "stablize" the functional approach. In particular, it would provide an error function when the polynomial was guessing far away from the traditional solution.
