Characterize the fibers features exploring the matrix structure
Industrial CT scanning technology is the only inspection technique able to characterize in an easy way the overall material structure of a composite component. CT can provide precise measurements of the overall sample, from the whole structure down to individual fiber level. Every structural and dimensional aspect of composite parts can be assessed through one CT dataset. Computed tomography is an effective device to create models for prediction of the mechanical properties of composites.
Industrial CT scanning allows quick and accurate inspection of parts’ internal and external structures. With the high resolution, RX Solutions CT devices enable the validation of tiny details on composite components.
It is possible to define and export an accurate 3D model of the sample to make measurements of the inner and outer geometries, on simple or multi-material parts.
CT datasets contain the entire sample geometric information and can be used to perform different kinds of analyses: voids analysis, actual parts to CAD comparison, part to part comparison, wall thickness analysis or reverse engineering. A large number of parameters can be quantified: local and global fiber orientation, local and global fiber concentration, deviation from predefined reference orientation and other statistical parameters as fibers distribution.
