ATA and Siemens to host digital image correlation seminar

By ATA Engineering

Explore digital image correlation (DIC) alongside your industry peers at an upcoming seminar hosted by ATA Engineering and Siemens Digital Industries Software. 

On Wednesday, May 24, 2023, join Expert Partner ATA and Siemens for the one-day DIC Seminar at ATA’s headquarters in San Diego, California. This free event will feature presentations on the basic principles of DIC and test-analysis correlation, followed by live demonstrations of image acquisition and data processing for quasi-static and dynamic applications using Simcenter Testlab, a comprehensive testing solution integrating high-speed multiphysics data acquisition with a full suite of integrated modeling and analytics tools.

ATA and Siemens will cohost an in-person digital image correlation seminar on Wednesday, May 24 in San Diego, California.

What will you learn?

At this seminar, ATA and Siemens will answer the following questions:

  • What is digital image correlation, and how would it be useful to my company?
  • What equipment would I need to use this technology?
  • How does this technology compare to traditional methods for measuring strain, such as using strain gages?
  • Can I use DIC for dynamic applications, and if so, what is the frequency range over which it would be applicable?
