The contribution deals with an experimental investigation of deformation fields of a specimen loaded by combined loading. The experiment was done using non-contact optical method of low-speed digital image correlation. This technique allows investigate displacement as well strain fields. The experimentally obtained results depicted in the paper in a form of color maps and graphs were verified by a numerical simulation performed in Ansys, where two types of meshing were used to demonstrate the coherence between experiment and simulation.
