Deformation measurement is normally achieved by using Digital Image Correlation (DIC) technique when deformation is not discontinuous. However, the presence of discontinuities makes the deformation process very challenging and DIC fails. An innovative technique is proposed in this study which splits the subset (segment) of an image into multiple parts and use segmented subset of the image for correlation process. The performance of the proposed technique is evaluated using different experiments where different types of discontinuities are introduced in the deformation process at different angles and having different discontinuity opening sizes. The obtained results are compared with the recently proposed Discontinuous Digital Image Correlation (DDIC) technique. The results show that the proposed technique is more reliable and having high accuracy which reaches upto 1/100th of a pixel under favorable circumstances
