A sample of nine Norway spruce side boards of narrow dimensions were tested in tension according to the standard EN 408. Strain fields were simultaneously measured using two master-slave connected measurement systems based on digital image correlation (DIC). Each system performed a separate measurement project measuring about 50% of the measurable length of each board and the results were combined, visualized and evaluated as one project using specific DIC software. The objectives were to investigate the possibility of measuring strain fields by use of multi-system measurements, to analyze the strain field distribution and to investigate the possibility of determining local modulus of elasticity (MOE) using strain field measurements. The results show that longitudinal strain fields were useful for identification of areas with reduced stiffness, that lateral board displacements, measured by the DIC systems, can be applied for identification of local defects, and that strain fields can be used for local MOE determination.
