The ability of the computer-vision technique of digital-image correlation to measure full-field in-plane surface deformations at elevated temperatures was evaluated by a series of experiments. Samples were subjected to pure translation, free thermal expansion and uniform tensile loads. Results are presented which show that the digital-image-correlation technique remains fully capable of accurate measurement of the displacements and strains on the surface of a planar object at temperatures up to 650°C.
