|Abstract: ||In recent years, techniques for monitoring displacements and surface strains in laboratorial tests have been introduced. Some of
those methods are based on photogrammetry and image post-processing, allowing both displacement and strain fields to be monitored at a
significant number of target points at any stage.
This manuscript aims at contributing by proposing a simple and comprehensive approach for monitoring experimental tests using
photogrammetry. An innovative strategy is introduced to efficiently recover the strain fields at the surface of a loaded specimen.
This technique is based on a meshless approach and does not require any triangulation of data points. In this approach, shape
functions are constructed from radial basis function interpolation in local subdomains, for which different numbers of data points
may be included. To allow accounting for the presence of generic geometries, which may include concavities or convexities, the
selection of interpolating points is performed considering a line-of-sight algorithm, avoiding inappropriate selection of neighbouring
A number of practical examples are here presented for different concrete specimens tested in the laboratory. The presented results
indicate that the proposed method can provide smooth strain fields, which allow an easy identification of microcracking development at early
stages of loading.|
