This paper presents a study on the behaviour of aluminium plates subject to close range blast loads. Measurement of the full out-of-plane displacement ﬁeld is performed combining two high-speed cameras in a stereoscopic set up and the digital image correlation technique. The measured displacement ﬁelds are compared to the calculated data using two diﬀerent FEM codes. A good agreement has been found between both experimental and numerical data.
Key words: 3D digital image correlation / high-speed cameras / blast loading / laboratoryscale experiments / thin plate deformation
