TESCAN micro-CT Webinars

Introduction to TESCAN micro-CT

3D x-ray computed tomography imaging, also known as micro-CT, is a non-destructive imaging technique for characterizing materials.

In this webinar, we present:

  •  The history of computed tomography
  • How micro-CT works, including its limitations
  • Review of applications examples

Duration of the webinar: 01:10:27

Introduction to TESCAN Dynamic Micro-CT

Time-resolved 3D imaging with x-rays has rapidly emerged as an essential technique for understanding material processes and behaviors. This dynamic micro-CT technique allows in-situ investigations ranging from mechanical deformation to fluid flow in porous materials.

In this webinar, we explore:

  • The challenges and innovations that led to the development of dynamic-CT
  • Applications for dynamic-CT in materials science, life science and earth sciences

Duration of the webinar: 00:56:47

X-ray micro-CT in Geoscience: Multi-scale and Dynamic Imaging

Micro-CT provides valuable non-destructive 3D information to geoscientists. From large scale features like sedimentary structures and fracture distributions, down to microscale features like pore connectivity and mineral distributions, micro-CT can be used to obtain unique insights in the most complex heterogeneous rocks. Also, learn how dynamic micro-CT imaging can applied to visualizing how rocks deform or how fluids move through the pore space.

In this webinar, we present:

  • A general introduction to this technology and applications in oil and gas, sedimentology and mineralogy
  • Applications examples, with an emphasis on multi-scale imaging (from core scale down to pore-scale) and dynamic imaging (visualizing fluid flow at pore scale)

Duration of the webinar: 1:01:31

Micro-CT and Additive Manufacturing: Moving from 3D to 4D

The evolution of additive manufacturing (AM) over the last decade has been impressive and has the potential to be a disruptive technique in the overall manufacturing arena. However, there are still obstacles to overcome concerning the quality of the final part. Micro-CT is a non-destructive technique used to create highly detailed 3D volumes of intact samples throughout an AM part’s lifecycle, including process development, process monitoring and final part quality.


In this webinar, we present:

  • The fundamentals of micro-CT
  • Examples of 3D imaging of AM-produced parts
  • A discussion of the future of micro-CT in AM
  • How dynamic-CT is providing insights to the performance of AM parts

Duration of the webinar: 01:01:31

Simulation and Modeling Validated through TESCAN Dynamic-CT

Modeling and simulation are valuable and potentially time-saving tools in materials engineering; however, it is always important to validate the simulation results through actual experimentation whenever possible. 4D uninterrupted Dynamic-CT is an ideal method for validating, refining and improving simulations.

In this webinar, we present an actual validation study including:

  • Parameters for the experiments
  • Comparison of simulation data to Dynamic micro-CT data
  • Uninterrupted imaging of changes taking place in the actual material during compression

Duration of the webinar: 00:10:43
