Lucideon releases white paper on the use of digital image correlation in masonry research

  • 13 Jun 2017

Lucideon has released a new white paper for the construction sector entitled ‘The Use of Digital Image Correlation in Masonry Research’, co-written by Dr Geoff Edgell, director and principal consultant for construction at Lucideon and Cliff Fudge, technical director at H+H UK Limited.

The paper covers the use of Digital Image Correlation in recent projects on concrete masonry.

Lucideon has recently used the DIC advanced visual analysis technique on concrete masonry for insights and understanding into the performance, durability and failure analysis of materials and products when interacting with external forces, weights, strains and stresses.

Geoff Edgell explains that the technique allows Lucideon to capture real time measurements of strains on individual components or complete structures, and to visualise where these are critical. He also says that the technology allows the company to perform non-destructive testing.

Cliff Fudge added: “We have commissioned the technique with Lucideon on a number of occasions and it has enabled us to successfully understand the stresses and strains that take place within materials under load, which hitherto has not been possible.”

Therefore, Lucideon has had a greater understanding of how loads are transferred and has been provided with information to enable a balance of safety and construction costs.

Lucideon offers a wide range of testing and analysis services to the construction industry to optimise processes, improve materials and resolve disputes.

The company can now offer advanced analysis, through non-destructive testing, to identify how materials and structures perform under applied stresses and strains, due to DIC technology.
