Applications of X-ray computed tomography in the geosciences by Geological Society Publications

By Geological Society Publications

X-ray computed tomography (CT) is a method that permits non-destructive imaging and quantification of inner beneficial properties of gadgets. It used to be initially constructed as a scientific imaging strategy, however it is now additionally turning into popular for the research of fabrics in engineering and the geosciences. X-ray CT finds transformations in density and atomic composition and will accordingly be used for the learn of porosity, the relative distribution of contrasting sturdy levels and the penetration of injected strategies. As a non-destructive procedure, it truly is perfect for tracking of procedures, corresponding to the stream of ideas and the behaviour of fabrics lower than compression. simply because huge numbers of parallel two-dimensional cross-sections might be got, third-dimensional representations of chosen gains should be created. during this e-book, numerous purposes of X-ray CT within the geosciences are illustrated by means of papers protecting quite a lot of disciplines, together with petrology, soil technology, petroleum geology, geomechanics and sedimentology.

So-called industrial scanners are intended for analysis of inanimate objects only and have also been used for flow imaging. They differ from a medical scanner in several aspects. Notably, the sample is rotated in this type of scanner as opposed to the X-ray source, as in third and fourth generation medical scanners. , VAN GEET, M. & JACOBS, P. (eds) 2003.
