Comparing and simultaneously visualizing measuring data and exchanging data in general becomes more and more important in metrology. Therefore, additional scalar values and geometries, for example, from simulation programs, can be imported into GOM Correlate Professional. The data created in the software can be exported in different formats and can be used, for example, for oscillation analysis in third-party software.
Based on the extensometer, you can check the length change of a specimen. The function allows a non-contact measurement of the length change with a reference length exactly given and can be used in 2D and 3D projects. Consequently, no mechanical contacts can influence the measuring results. The length change can be checked within one project in two or more directions. This function allows you to track the length change during a live measurement and to evaluate it during post-processing in the inspection workspace.
GOM offers free software for 2D image acquisition with USB 3.0 cameras which use the generic programming interface GenICam. The captured images are saved in a project which can be evaluated directly in GOM Correlate. The software offers various tools, for example, 2D point and surface components for simple analyses and records of movements and deformations. Using these tools, it is possible to understand complex part behavior in detail. Therefore, the software is ideally suited for plane test applications with existing cameras.
In GOM Correlate Professional, evaluating a bulge test is possible with a system script. The script evaluates a previously recorded test according to ISO 16808. The tool sizes and the slope of the linear elastic elongation and Poisson’s ratio are used to determine evaluation zones and to compute compensations according to the standard. The script generates the evaluation range of the thickness strain depending on the tool size, the yield curve, possibly the elastically compensated yield curve and a plausibility check using the bending strain ratio. The evaluations are recorded automatically in a report.
