3Dmagination has developed a new 4-day training course in the field of industrial tomography at the CACEMI-CNAM in Paris. The training will take place on November, 7-10 (2016).
The Centre d’actualisation des connaissances et d'études des matériaux industriels (Centre for Updating the Knowledge and Study of Industrial Materials: http://cacemi-en.cnam.fr/) provides professional training in metallurgy, plastics engineering, ceramics, composites and industry-related trades:
X-ray computed tomography offers significant potential for real-time metrological inspection and in situ mechanical characterisation. This training course is addressed to production and R&D technicians/engineers willing to understand the process of industrial inspection, materials design and reverse-engineering. The programme will include:
-Principle of X-ray computed tomography, noise/artefacts, and practical guide for good imaging
-Understand the constraints put on the technique when performing in situ mechanical experiments
-Dimensional metrology with advanced measurement
-Inspection workflows for detection and quantification of porosity, defects, density variations and cracks
-Actual/nominal comparison by integrating CAD models
-Easy creation and customization of automated workflows to integrate in a new production
-Digital Volume Correlation (DVC): principle, importance of noise and texture
-Perform DVC computations to investigate deformation and failure mechanisms, and use the results as input for micro-finite element models (micro-FE)
-Autonomous hands-on practical in interactive mode based on various industrial applications (molding/casting, additive manufacturing). Attendees are welcome to bring their own dataset.
The training is composed of a theoretical part (1/4) followed by computer-based studies (3/4) in a unique platform integrating visualisation, quantification and metrology (Avizo Inspect).
