We present a non-destructive and non-contact extensometry technique, which has been developed in order to study the behaviour of different materials such as polycarbonate, araldite, urethane... The aim of this article is to propose an original extensometry technique applied to textiles and papers.

A spectral analysis of a crossed grating marked on the surface of a specimen and recorded by a C.C.D. camera is presented. The procedure is based on the use of a bidimensional F.F.T algorithm coupled with an interpolation process. It leads to the accurate determination of frequencies. Numerical simulations indicate that the strain sensitivity is of the same order than the sensitivity given by a strain gage technique.
