With a set of new features, Digital Volume Correlation 2020.3 makes it easier and faster to compute the 3D full-field displacement and strain maps from a reference volume to a deformed volume.
DVC 2020.3 introduces a unique pre-processing module to quantify the displacement and strain uncertainties from two repeat scans, and help you ensure the reliability of your DVC analysis.
User experience is improved with local and global approaches now separated in dedicated modules. The mesh generation used in the global approach can also be called from a separate module.
You can now speed-up and automate your incremental DVC analysis (local or global) on a series of deformed volumes to capture the mechanical history of your specimen. Two strategies are proposed to take into account the level of cumulated strains (small or large).
DVC 2020.3 offers many new post-processing tools:
- One-click extraction of displacement vector and strain tensor components
- One-click computation of the Green-Lagrange strain tensor from a displacement field
- Enhanced visualization tools for scalars and vectors, easy color mapping on volumes, meshes and surfaces
- Median filter computation to smooth the displacement field resulting from DVC global approach, and to correct its spurious vectors
- More conversion and export capacities, such as excel spreadsheets format, are available to take your results to the next level and perform further analysis with Python codes, FE-solvers, etc.
- New tutorials and enriched documentation will help you get quickly up-to-speed with those new features.
Large stacks of serial sections need to be aligned and often require denoising and contrast enhancement. These actions are time consuming and demand powerful hardware.
EM Toolbox offers powerful algorithms, is easy to use, and able to perform tasks in a reasonable time, no matter which hardware is available.
EM Toolbox offers:
- Post-processing workflow for Large Image Stacks (LVA) (out-of-core processing)
- Straightforward configuration and execution of the workflow
- Workflow: slice alignment, including reduction of distortions; image denoising; and contrast enhancement
