    Micro-CT Examination of a Tree Mushroom

    Polypores are a group of fleshy fungi with pores or tubes underneath. Taxonomically, the polypores are complicated and not completely understood, with an amazing amount of morphological diversity. While many can be identified by their macro features and the host tree they are attached to, if a mushroom grows on a large …

    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, …
