The July 2017 edition of the Material World magazine will include an article on the application of X-ray computed tomography in engineering failure investigations written by Ilaria Corni and Nicola Symonds.

This article gives a background of this non-destructive volume imaging technique and presents two examples in which this technology has been applied to support engineering failure analysis: two injectors from a V12 marine diesel engine and a bronze centrifugal impeller from the seawater pump of a military ship.

IOM3 members can view the article by clicking the link in the external website or for more information on the use of CT in failure analysis read our Impact Case Study.
