Wall Thickness Analyses
of material thickness
Wall thickness is one of many metrological challenges which must be addressed by industrial designers. Most of the industrial components, including pipes, bottles,
medical pills, airfoils, and turbines blades are specified by wall thicknesses
to ensure the expected mechanical strength and weight.
Measuring the material
thickness on a 3D volume generated by a CT scan is straightforward. Results are
displayed using a colour code, showing areas where the thickness exceeds the
given tolerances and providing minimum, maximum, mean or standard deviation.
The wall thickness analysis completes the characterization of
samples, providing an easy-to-read 3D colour map and cross-section wall
