Abstract
At the Centre for X‐ray Tomography of the Ghent University (Belgium) (www.ugct.ugent.be), a lot of progress is being made in hardware development for high‐resolution X‐ray CT scanners as well as in the field of software for data reconstruction and 3D analysis. We present the latest developments in the inhouse developed package Morpho+ [1], a flexible 3D analysis software program which provides several structural 3D parameters of a scanned sample. Morpho+ is able to calculate several geometrical parameters for both the complete sample as for specific components of the sample, such as grains or pores. These parameters include the surface, diameter of the maximum inscribed sphere, diameter of the minimum circumscribed sphere, equivalent diameter, orientation and a measure for the sphericity (shape parameter). In addition, total sample porosity (or volume fraction) and partial porosity (radial and longitudinal) can be determined. To measure the connectivity of the sample, a skeletonization algorithm and calculation of parameters such as the Euler Number and the size of bottlenecks of a network are included in the program. Morpho+ produces a quantitative output, but it is also possible to visualize the different steps of the analysis, enabling easy interpretation of the results. For example different elements in a 3D volume can be colour‐labelled based on their size. Additionally, the surfaces of the analysed components can be saved an STL‐file for easy visualisation or further analysis.
