The present paper reports on the progress towards the development of a computational workbench infrastructure that implements the Mesh Free Random Grid Method (MFRGM) for the remote (non contact) measurement of displacement and strain fields. The method is applicable to structures bounded by flat surfaces that deform under various mechanical and generalized loading conditions. A brief description of MFRGM is followed by the description of the current prototype of a software workbench developed for the computational implementation of the algorithms involved with the analysis display and export of the experimental results associated with any specific applications of the method. Displacement validation as well as two examples of its usage are also presented.
