Biomechanics place huge challenges on existing measurement technologies for determining the mechanical properties of materials, as well as verifying parts performance, such as implants. GOM´s advanced full-field imaging methods using 3D image correlation, stereo photogrammetry and 3D digitizing techniques are being used for dynamic measuring of biological mechanical systems such as bones, tendons, ligaments and even tissues.
These measurement methods have far greater dynamic range than traditional measuring devices, like strain gauges, displacement sensors and 3D coordinate measurement machines and strongly support the product development. Optical 3D measuring systems are today used in this area to determine material properties, to analyze specimen performance and to verify numerical simulations.
GOM invites you to a Webinar which will discuss various applications for optical 3D metrology in the area of medical / biomechanics testing and quality control.
This webinar has already taken place. The webinar recording is available on YouTube.
In order to speed up the product creation process, design and test engineers as well as specialists from research & development rely on optical measurement systems. This is what the exchange of experts revealed at the GOM Testing Workshop.
Short development cycles, high cost pressure and increasing quality requirements demand accelerated time to market. In order to speed up the product creation process, companies from the automotive, aerospace, biomechanics and civil engineering sector increasingly rely on optical measurement systems. This is what the exchange of experts revealed at the GOM Testing Workshop "3D Metrology for static and dynamic Component Testing" on 13th November 2014 in Darmstadt, Germany. More than 140 specialists joined the industry meeting.
User presentations of Airbus Helicopters, Audi and the Orthopaedic Clinic and Polyclinic of the University of Rostock demonstrated that optical measuring systems replace conventional methods. Unlike strain gauges, accelerometers, transducers or extensometers optical systems measure geometries as well as three-dimensional displacements and deformations. In this process, capturing static and dynamic deformations is not only based on individual points, but mainly on full-field measurements.
The results allow users to determine input parameters for simulations. Simulation models can also be compared with measuring data in order to choose the right material and improve geometry and manufacturing processes. This speeds up product development, while increasing safety and durability of the components at the same time.
