Quickly obtain composite materials' properties from your imaging data

Composite materials are making their way into many different application areas, ranging from aerospace to automotive and construction. Their properties improve stiffness and strength and allow for design of lightweight components at a reasonable cost. A composite is commonly defined as a combination of two or more distinct materials, each of which retains its own distinctive properties, to create a new material with properties that cannot be achieved by any of the components acting alone.

Thermo Scientific Avizo Software allows you to obtain structural, physical, chemical, and mechanical properties quickly and accurately. With dedicated tools to obtain fiber properties, porosity, and pore network information, Avizo Software is the digital analytic lab you need to analyze your 2D and 3D imaging data, no matter the data acquisition system you used.

Techniques

Fiber analysis

Avizo Software is an all-in-one image analysis platform for the visualization, processing, and quantification of fibrous materials. Avizo Software enables the detection of manufacturing process damage, such as matrix cracking, fiber/matrix debonding, or fiber breakage. Defects in the material can be quantified locally (voids, cracks) or globally (cross-sectional distortions or misalignment).

 

Porosity analysis

Avizo Software is an all-in-one image analysis platform for the visualization, processing, and quantification of porous materials. Avizo Software enables the detection and classification of various types of porosity (for example, connected vs isolated; macro pores vs micro pores), even on images with complex artifacts (such as pore back effect in FIB-SEM).

 

Pore Network Analysis

Avizo Software is an all-in-one image analysis platform for the visualization, processing, and quantification of porous materials. This extension enables the conversion of the pore space into a model (Pore Network Model) representing pores and their connectivity, on which various properties can be color mapped. It also provides advanced pore space statistics (pore size distribution, pore throat size distribution, channel length, etc.) and filtering of the model based on its properties.

Permeability analysis

Avizo Software is an all-in-one image analysis platform for the visualization, processing, and quantification of your materials. The Xlab extension provides numerical simulation capabilities to compute absolute permeability, thermal conductivity, electrical resistivity, and molecular diffusivity.

Failure Analysis

Avizo Software provides a fast and robust meshing engine to automatically create simulation-ready meshes from 3D labeled images. Avizo Software generates high-quality meshes with smoothed conforming interfaces from large multi-material segmented images. You have fine control over element size distribution, while Avizo Software preserves thin structures and topology. Meshes can be exported to major solver’s format along with boundary conditions. Avizo Software also provides import of the solver’s outputs for post-processing the results with advanced visualization tools.

 

Grain Analysis

Avizo Software is an all-in-one image analysis platform for the visualization, processing, and quantification of grains. Avizo Software provides advanced tools and enables the detection, segmentation, and analysis of grains, their size, distribution, and shape, even on complex images with artifacts. Grains can then be filtered, classified, and analyzed allowing full size, distribution, and shape statistical extraction. Avizo Software also provides the tools to automate and repeat your analysis through easy-to-customize recipes.

 

Particles analysis

Avizo Software is an all-in-one image analysis platform for the visualization, processing, and quantification of particles to improve performance of your materials, whether catalysts, alloys, or polymers. Avizo Software provides advanced tools to enable the detection, segmentation, and analysis of particles. Particles can then be filtered, classified, and analyzed, allowing full size, distribution, and shape statistical extraction.
