A real ETICS sample for determining the load-bearing and deformation behavior in a practical compression test (left) and the deformations determined by means of digital image correlation (DIC) (center). The load-bearing and deformation behavior of an “identical” sample simulated by means of the finite element method (FEM) (right) and the calculated deformations are compared with the deformations determined by means of DIC, and the FEM models are thereby validated.
