Advances in X-ray Tomography for Geomaterials by Jacques Desrues, Gioacchino Viggiani, Pierre Bésuelle

By Jacques Desrues, Gioacchino Viggiani, Pierre Bésuelle

This e-book brings jointly a complete of forty eight contributions (including five keynote papers) that have been awarded on the second overseas Workshop at the program of X-ray CT for Geomaterials (GeoX 2006) held in Aussois, France, on 4-7 October, 2006.

The contributions hide a variety of issues, from basic characterization of fabric habit to functions in geotechnical and geoenvironmental engineering. contemporary advances of X-ray know-how, and software program also are mentioned. As such, this may be invaluable analyzing for a person attracted to the appliance of X-ray CT to geomaterials from either basic and utilized perspectives.Content:
