Micro-CT Examination of Additively Manufactured Parts

Micro-CT has become widely used to analyze and test additively manufactured parts, particularly for porosity analysis and dimensional measurement. In conventional manufacturing, a weld would always be inspected for voids and inclusions, but in additive manufacturing the entire sample is essentially one large weld. Therefore, to qualify and verify safety-critical aerospace, automotive, …

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 Applications for Examining Corrosion in Metals

Quantifying the degradation of degradable implants and bone formation in the femoral condyle using micro‑CT 3D reconstruction   ABSTRACT Degradation or corrosion negatively affects magnesium alloys but previous evaluation methods for non‑traumatic in vivo quantification of implant degradation and bone formation have been imperfect. In this study, degradation was monitored by weighing the …

Micro-CT Examination of a Rusty Screw Point

Corrosion in metals can affect a wide array of man-made materials, from reinforced steel in concrete to historic monuments and implanted medical devices. Corrosion causes a loss of strength that can lead to safety hazards in bridges, buildings, and pipelines, as well as in medical devices. The annual direct cost of metallic …

Micro-CT Applications for Organic Electronic Devices

Micro-Computed Tomography Measurements in Electronics ABSTRACT Previous methods of measuring deformations in electronic components and assemblies usually involved optical methods, which required cross-sectioning of the part to have access to the region of interest. Additionally, the measurements could be limited to the line of sight so that only the optically visible cut …
