Abstract

The latest advancements in 3D computed tomography and numerical simulations have led to the introduction of a new digital approach. The new digital approach has enhanced the capability to generate 3D images and investigate the microstructure of complex porous materials. These images allow the numerical simulation of a wide range of physical properties to be performed when combined with imaging and analysis algorithms for phase separation. Researchers are able to obtain precise geometric descriptions and directly calculate the structure's elastic properties by using 3D imaging technique. It is also found that these advancements have enabled researchers to simulate the elastic deformation of p..
