Advances in Computed Tomography for Geomaterials: GeoX 2010 by Khalid A. Alshibli, Allen H. Reed

By Khalid A. Alshibli, Allen H. Reed

This identify discusses a large diversity of matters relating to using computed tomography in geomaterials and geomechanics. The contributions conceal quite a lot of issues, together with deformation and pressure localization in soils, rocks and sediments; fracture and harm overview in rocks, asphalt and urban; delivery in porous media; oil and fuel exploration and creation; neutron tomography and different novel experimental and analytical thoughts; image-based computational modeling; and software program and visualization instruments.

As such, it will be necessary analyzing for somebody drawn to the appliance of computed tomography to geomaterials from either primary and utilized perspectives.Content:
