Application of Computed Tomography in Structure Analyses of Metal Matrix Syntactic Foams

I. Kozma, I. Zsoldos, G. Dorogi, and S. Papp
Abstract—In order to create 3D models used in finite element analysis, a reconstruction of the structure of metal foam composites reinforced with ceramic spherical shells is necessary. A new algorithm has been developed for reconstruction. The input of the algorithm consists of CT layer images which were created at the Szechenyi Istvan University, Györ, Hungary. The CT images were analyzed by the new algorithm. The algorithm seeks the contours of the spherical shells by gradually increasing the radii, also in CT images. A suitably accurate 3D CAD model can be created with algorithm.

Index Terms—Foam reconstruction, digital image processing, μCT, circle fitting.
