This paper outlines a computational procedure that has been implemented for the direct measurement of finite material strains from digital images taken of a material surface during plane-strain process experiments. The selection of both hardware and software components of the image processing system is presented, and the numerical procedures developed for measuring the 2D material deformations are described. The algorithms are presented with respect to two-roll milling of sugar cane bagasse, a complex fibro-porous material that undergoes large strains during processing to extract the sucrose-rich liquid. Elaborations are made in regard to numerical developments for other forms of experimentation, algorithm calibrations and measurement improvements. Finite 2D strain results are shown for both confined uniaxial compression and two-roll milling experiments.
