CT data analysis Volume Graphics VG STUDIO MAX Material

CT data analysis Volume Graphics VG STUDIO MAX Material

Short description: Bases on CT data substantial conclusions about material structure and component properties can be drawn. For the processing of the frequently huge amounts of data a powerful workstation is available.

Processible data: CT data (manufacturer-independent), volume data in general

Applications: Determination of material and component properties based on volume data, i.e. segmentation and quantification of material components, fibre orientation analysis or porosity analysis.
