An initial experimental study on the influence of beam hardening in X-ray CT for dimensional metrology

Abstract

X-ray computed tomography (CT) enables the visualisation and dimensional evaluation of both the internal and external geometry of a workpiece, it is therefore well suited for measuring geometric features that are otherwise inaccessible to tactile and optical instruments. Beam hardening is a wellknown physical process that can degrade the quality of CT… (More)
