The characterization of aeronautic structures was facilitated by the development of dedicated QUICOM algorithms and methods, aiming to address quantitative characterization of the inner structure of composite materials, operating on the generated CT data. This included image enhancement techniques, analysis concerning structural features (e.g. orientation or alignment), as well as material decomposition in combination with meaningful visualizations of the results.


In this context, reliable and robust methods were implemented and used for the determination, extraction and characterization of the geometry, orientation and shape of the inner structure in CFRP, as well as for determining geometrical and material properties. Applied techniques examine the determination of surface, detection of pores, orientation of fibers, and more. For example the FiberScout tool allows investigating and exploring 3DCT datasets of fiber reinforced composites in a simple and fast way.
