GOM Correlate enables the tracking of crack tip points and the evaluation of the trajectory of crack tip points. With the help of contrasting methods, the position of crack tip points can be detected in homogeneously colored samples. Other factors like crack length, crack holes and crack modes in 3D can also be derived. The function can be used for a broad range of applications in materials research and works for numerous materials, like metals, composite materials and plastics. The analysis of crack propagation is used in many industries with high security requirements, like aerospace, automotive and civil engineering.
