Digital image correlation (DIC) is an optical non-contact method to measure 3D coordinates for the evaluation of deformation, such as displacement and strain, for a wide range of applications in materials research and component testing. Thus, DIC enables an analytical investigation of the complex behavior of any test object.
Analysis of motion and deformation is carried out using a component concept. Points are divided into coherent groups and defined as components. Transformations or corrections to rigid body movements can then be calculated for these components. 6DoF analysis can be applied to determine the translation and rotation movements in all directions. Vector fields then help visualize point movements and deformation over time.
All data created in GOM Correlate Professional and ARAMIS Professional is bundled in one single file. The free GOM Correlate software provides access to all measuring results, which leads to an improved interaction between the departments responsible for measurement, analysis, design and development. Measuring data can be discussed and decisions can be taken faster.
