Question: I am following ASTM D638-10, and my 'strain at break' results are nearly half of what other labs are reporting for the same material. What is wrong?

Digital Image Correlation (DIC) is an analytical technique that compares images of a specimen’s surface during testing to generate full-field strain maps. This technology gives you more information than a traditional point-to-point extensometer or a strain gauge and allows you to see the complete story of the material’s behavior beyond the stress strain curve.
