Many different types of composite analyses can be performed using X-ray CT
Industrial CT scanning technology provides the possibility to quantify the fiber orientation and distribution inside your component. It gives important information, since the distribution affects the mechanical and physical properties of the workpiece, such as its strengths, internal stress or fatigue properties.
Powerful analysis software enables to know if the fiber distribution is isotropic and homogeneous, by representing every fiber as a tensor. Furthermore, a comparison between a CT dataset and a CAD nominal file can be made easily, to quickly and accurately compare the part to a CAD model, by showing the internal fibers deviations.
Industrial CT scanning technology allows the identification of cracks, porosities or inclusions inside the scanned part. The volume fraction of pores and their spatial distribution in the sample can be calculated and highlighted with different colors using post-processing software.
