This paper presents the first systematic effort for the experimental validation of the 2D Meshless Random Grid Method (MRGM) for the full field measurement of displacement and strain fields. Although the MRGM has been demonstrating very promising characteristics of accuracy, performance and ease of application based on previously conducted sensitivity analysis supported by virtual data, extensive experimental validation was not available until now. This work comes to fill this gap and presents preliminary validation results against strain gauge data collected from open hole tension experiments of composite specimens. In addition, strain and displacement field verification is performed by comparison studies with finite element analysis results.
