By F. Mees, R. Swennen, M. Van Geet, P. Jacobs

X-ray computed tomography (CT) is a method that enables non-destructive imaging and quantification of inner beneficial properties of items. It was once initially built as a clinical imaging method, however it is now additionally turning into popular for the research of fabrics in engineering and the geosciences. X-ray CT finds transformations in density and atomic composition and will consequently be used for the research of porosity, the relative distribution of contrasting strong levels and the penetration of injected suggestions. As a non-destructive method, it truly is splendid for tracking of approaches, similar to the circulation of recommendations and the behaviour of fabrics below compression. simply because huge numbers of parallel two-dimensional cross-sections will be received, 3-dimensional representations of chosen positive factors should be created. during this ebook, numerous functions of X-ray CT within the geosciences are illustrated by way of papers masking quite a lot of disciplines, together with petrology, soil technological know-how, petroleum geology, geomechanics and sedimentology. additionally on hand: Mapping damaging Terrain utilizing distant Sensing - detailed e-book no 283 - ISBN 1862392293 Geoinformatics: info to wisdom - GSA USPE397 - ISBN 9780813723976 The Geological Society of LondonFounded in 1807, the Geological Society of London is the oldest geological society on the planet, and one of many greatest publishers within the Earth sciences.The Society publishes quite a lot of top of the range peer-reviewed titles for lecturers and pros operating within the geosciences, and enjoys an enviable foreign recognition for the standard of its work.The many parts during which we post in include:-Petroleum geology-Tectonics, structural geology and geodynamics-Stratigraphy, sedimentology and paleontology-Volcanology, magmatic experiences and geochemistry-Remote sensing-History of geology-Regional geology publications
