Micro-CT Applications for Fiber-Reinforced Plastics

Fiber characterization and orientation analysis Fibrous structures occur frequently in both natural and synthetic materials. With micro-CT, it is possible to analyze individual fiber properties (such as diameter), and orientation distribution. With several software tools, in-depth geometric characterization of fibers is possible. “The interface between fiber and matrix material in composites and …

Micro-CT Examination of a Hockey Stick

Fiber-reinforced plastics (or polymers) are composite materials made of a polymer matrix that is reinforced with fibers. Typically, most of these composites have strong, stiff fibers in a matrix, which produces a component that often has a low density yet is strong and stiff. Fibers, such as glass (as in fiberglass), carbon, …

Micro-CT Examination of Seal Integrity in Glass Vials

Closure systems for glass vials containing parenteral pharmaceuticals are critical for protecting the contents against microbial or other environmental contamination. The most common closure system consists of an elastomer stopper held in place by a crimped aluminum band. Compression is applied during the sealing process, which can affect the closure integrity. We …

Micro-CT Examination of Wooden and Metal Jewelry

 Precious artifacts and historical art objects are often affected by decay, environmental pollution, vandalism, or just simple age and neglect. Micro-CT is well suited to analyze historical artifacts for restoration and preservation, allowing conservators to inspect the exterior surfaces and interior structures without destroying the original objects. Unlike ordinary 2D radiography, …

Micro-CT of an Household Ant

The discipline of taxonomy has been transformed from the traditional morphology-based approach, using written descriptions and line drawings, to a complementary mixture of several types of data, including micro-CT scanning. Micro-CT provides the detail and resolution necessary to enhance species descriptions or enable species identifications. Detailed assessments of both external and internal …
