In this paper, a new algorithm of image reconstruction for electrical capacitance tomography (ECT) is introduced. The algorithm is developed based on the analogy between image reconstruction and inverse heat conduction problems. The algorithm determines the conductivity value and the boundary of an unknown object inside a circular domain. For this purpose, the governing equations are discretized using finite volume method, and a boundary fitted mesh is employed to capture complex geometries… CONTINUE READING
