Abstract: As part of a programme investigating the structural integrity of welds, the Digital Image Correlation (DIC)technique was used to obtain the full-field strain distribution during tensile testing of cross-weld specimens cutfrom a multi-pass girth welded pipe. The displacement maps were analyzed using Matlab scripts to compute localstress-strain variations from which the local proof stress values were extracted. It has been found that the DICparameters, such as the size of interrogation windows (subsets) and speckle sizes, have significant effects on the displacement values due to the local variations in the mechanical properties within the weld between the passes.The DIC parameters were therefore optimized using monolithic aluminium alloy specimens with stressconcentrations giving similar displacement gradients. The use of a high resolution camera at high magnificationallowed the variations between the welding passes to be observed. The variation of the mechanical properties inthe weld region is correlated with the full field hardness maps of the same region.
