The short exposure time and high framing rate of the TV-holography system allow for global interferometric measurements even in industrial environments. In this paper we report some experiences from failure tests on concrete and weak sedimentary rocks. In a set of rock cavity failure tests, TV-holography has been used to monitor the cavity deformations. The technique allows for a complete description of the continuous displacement and deformation of a surface, and has a potential to reveal important information about, e.g., symmetry-breaking processes. Combined with image processing, the technique has been used to study micro-cracks on the surface of concrete blocks during pressure testing. The purpose of these tests was to study the fracture mechanics of concrete, including crack initiation and propagation.
