SkyScan microCT System Integrated in Instron® Testing Machine

Bruker microCT installed the first micro-CT system into a high-load Instron® testing machine at Gdansk University of Technology (Politechnika Gdańska). The Instron® load frame can apply up to 50 kN (5000 kgf) to an object during compression or tensile tests.

The micro-CT system integrated in the Instron® machine allows 3D imaging of internal object microstructure while applying such force with spatial resolution of 15-40 microns. The system will be used for detailed revealing of 3D damage in internal structure of concrete samples. The results will be used for exact modeling of behavior of concrete structure under load and prediction of possible damages.
