CIPS sandstone microstructure

Collection of CIPS (Calcite In situ Preciptation System) core sandstone data include CT projection images at 35keV and 45keV, CT reconstructured slices, and DCM reconstructured pore and mineral phases distributions in 3D. Additional information and data, such as .dcm data files, SEM and optical images, EXCEL spreadsheet, animations, are also includ... more

About this Project

Data Constrained Materials C2011/6428

The objective of the project is to develop a data-constrained modelling methodology and software implementation to advance CSIRO's capability in quantitative 3D characterisation of materials microstructures and their bulk properties. Benchmark case studies are conducted in collaboration with CSIRO impact Flagships and Themes to elevate the impact C... more
