This first tutorial gives you an overview of the graphical user interface including 3D view, timeline and reporting. It briefly introduces all major software concepts.
Evaluation Software for 3D Testing
GOM Correlate is a digital image correlation (DIC) and evaluation software for materials research and component testing.
In order to ensure precise measurement accuracy, both GOM Correlate Professional and GOM Correlate software have been tested and certified by PTB and NIST institutions. The accuracy of the evaluation software is tested by comparing the results from the software with reference results. The GOM software has been placed in Category 1, the category with the smallest measurement deviations.
Plastic representation of deformations and depressions increases in the 3D image as well as even faster and easier interpretation of the results.
The online measuring volume can be displayed in the GOM Software 2018 to make it easier to position the specimen in the measuring volume optimally.
The GOM Software 2018 offers further templates for standardized test methods, such as tensile, bulge and FLC tests. Other repeatable test methods and project templates can be configured freely and integrated into the simplified user interface.
Several point components, for example, from measurements of a test from different directions, can now be combined into one region and used for rigid body motion compensation.
The GOM Software 2018 offers fast and simplified data access for complex scientific computations and enables the import of freely available Python libraries, such as NumPy, SciPy and Matplotlib.
The CSV and XML export now supports the export of several stages and further elements (for example, sections, curves and coordinate systems) and was further optimized in terms of speed, among others.
In addition to the colored deviation representation, deformations, such as bulges and dents, can be visualized excessively and thus more clearly.
All Features from GOM Correlate
The free GOM Correlate software serves also as a viewer for all measuring results that are created with GOM Correlate Professional.
Video tutorials offer an introduction to the GOM Correlate software features.
GOM Correlate is a free digital image correlation (DIC) and evaluation software for materials and component testing and serves as a viewer for data sets from the applications ARAMIS Professional, GOM Correlate Professional, TRITOP Professional and PONTOS Live.
GOM Correlate Professional differs from GOM Correlate in respect to the import of native CAD formats, active parametric, 3D image correlation and customizable mathematics.
GOM Correlate Professional data can be further processed in the free GOM Correlate software.

Data sets as learning and for different applications
This sample project shows a full-field analysis of a 3D component. The aim of this project is to analyze strain and displacement on the component's surface with the approach of digital image correlation (DIC). Further evaluations with sections and points are also implemented to see local effects.
GOM_Testing_Object_Component.gcorrelate (199 MB)
This project is an example for a dynamic motion analysis. It gives an overview of employing point components to analyze relative motion and displacement. Inspections like vector fields, the 6DoF evaluation and relative angle changes are included.
GOM_Testing_Object_Motion_Analysis.gcorrelate (182 MB)
This sample project shows a full field strain analysis of a flat punched hole specimen under uniaxial loading conditions. It demonstrates very local strain effects around the hole which are analyzed on the full surface of the specimen and displayed by sections.
GOM_Testing_Object_Material.gcorrelate (206 MB)
This project is a static analysis of an automotive plastic part under different loading conditions. For every loading condition, it shows the direction and magnitude of displacements in 3D space. The measuring data is aligned to a CAD model to use the directions of the coordinate system for inspections.
GOM_Testing_Object_Static_Analysis.gcorrelate (713 MB)
This example shows a typical real load case by means of a 3D part. The software is able to perform a full-field analysis even of very small deformations, which forms the basis for dimension checks. The visualization of the strain distribution allows evaluating local effects. The measured values serve for a full-field and quantitative comparison against FE simulation data.

GOM offers practical seminars and training sessions for beginners and advanced users.
The one-day seminar provides an introduction to the software with practical exercises, including: import of movie files and CAD data, point-based and full-field inspection, color representation of displacements and strain, inspection sections, measuring report, 3D viewer and much more.
The two-day training course is aimed at interested parties with only little experience in software-based evaluation of measuring objects. The training provides, among others, an introduction to the areas of component creation, simple inspection, creation parameters, alignments, parametric inspection, measuring principles, project templates and reporting.
User manuals and application-specific video tutorials provide important information about the GOM Software.
Numerous data sets for different applications are available in the Service Area.
The GOM Knowledge Base includes over 500 entries with information on software and hardware.
More than 5,000 users take advantage of the Forum to discuss issues and exchange experiences with other users and experts from GOM.
