More than Just Industrial CT Scanning
This important diondo tool provides more useful information concerning part behavior in different real life environments. The system results are especially beneficial when the actual behavior is compared with simulated expectations. This system can be equipped with additional functional modules to simulate real conditions under stress such as mechanical, thermal or chemical stress while being able to witness the impact on the material using CT. Micro CT can be used for the inspection of composite materials while under tension or compression testing or other stresses. Our software will provide detailed data that the user can easily disseminate. Where as conventional CT can be used to inspect batteries or other environmentally sensitive products while they are in real life conditions. The data received is very valuable to engineering staff and can prevent recalls.
Post Processing for In Situ CT scans
Representation of the results of the in-situ computerized tomographic investigation on a fiberglass specimen under tensile loads from 0 N until failure at 5 kN. The DVC (Direct Volume Correlation) method is used to visualize crack formation in the material as a result of the increasing tensile load.
With this method, it is possible to determine crack/damage initiation and follow the crack growth of even the smallest cracks.
In addition, it is possible to determine changes in the material and the influences of (volumetric) microstructure during loading, allowing damage analysis ("Effects-of-Defects").
