Scitech is now the exclusive distributor for MatchID in Australia and
MatchID produces software applications that are designed to provide
users with a deep insight into the measurement capabilities and uncertainties
of the Digital Image Correlation (DIC) platform, and how they facilitate
material identification and model validation.
By structurally embedding VFM (Virtual Fields Method), MatchID’s software
goes well beyond typical DIC by offering material identification and characterisation
tools. These parameters serve as a basis for Finite Element modelling (FEA),
and ultimately enable users to validate their simulations. MatchID has
developed a Finite Element (FE) validation module that creates a full-field,
point-to-point relation between simulation (FE model) and test (DIC result), thereby
allowing for structural validations of simulations.
MatchID’s unique range of solutions can be applied, in whole or in part,
for different materials adopted in diverse applications for a wide variety of
market segments. Applications include topology optimisation, analysing the behaviour
of auxetic foam, investigating the bending of shear-critical pre-stressed
beams, monitoring and testing of masonry arch bridges, notched tensile testing,
and impact pressure testing of horizontal quasi-rigid cylinders during vertical
