State of the art and future challenges in X-ray computed tomography for material mechanical behaviour assessment Event

09:45 - 18:00
26 January 2012
Building 85, Room 2209

Event details

The objective of this seminar is to investigate the present state of the art and future challenges of the use of X-ray computed tomography. Applications include damage detection in materials as well as 3D volume deformation through digital volume correlation software packages.

The unique feature of X-ray computed tomography to investigate the mechanical phenomena occurring within the solids as opposed to just on the surface makes it an invaluable tool to follow material degradation (micro and macro cracks in static or fatigue, in metals, composites etc...), capture material microstructural features as in metallic or polymeric foams, composites and many other heterogeneous materials and finally measure the deformation within the volume. These capabilities provide unique information to optimize the design of advanced structural components.

Poster presentations are invited on topics relevent to the theme of the seminar. Please produce an A1 portrait poster for the event; poster boards will be provided. Please incidate on the registration form if you wish to present a poster. Spaces for posters are limited and allocations will be made on receipt of registration fee.

There will be an exhibition of instruments related to those used in the presentation. There will also be a tour of the University of Southampton dedicated centre for computed tomography (CT) µ-vis The centre provides complete support for 3D imaging science, serving Engineering, Biomedical, Environmental and Archaeological Sciences. The centre encompasses five complementary scanning systems supporting a wide range of sample sizes (imaged volumes up to 1.5 x 1 x 1m) and resolution (down to ~200nm).
