Welcome to the KU Leuven XCT Core Facility!
The KU Leuven XCT Core Facility offers X-ray Computed Tomography (XCT) infrastructure and services to study the internal structure and behavior of materials and biological tissues at different length scales.
At KU Leuven XCT Core Facility we have an extensive infrastructure of XCT scanners, in-situ stages & software.
Fracture mode analysis of cementitious mortars by simultaneous application of 4D-XCT and acoustic emission technique
Abstract Cementitious brittle construction materials are susceptible to fracturing due to their heterogeneous material composition and relatively weak bond between the aggregates and paste. Hence,
Abstract Visualization and quantification of bone microarchitecture in the human knee allows gaining insight into normal bone structure, and into the structural changes occurring in
UV-Curing Assisted Direct Ink Writing of Dense, Crack-Free, and High-Performance Zirconia-Based Composites With Aligned Alumina Platelets
Abstract Additive manufacturing (AM) of high-performance structural ceramic components with comparative strength and toughness as conventionally manufactured ceramics remains challenging. Here, a UV-curing approach is
3D printing of an iron-rich slag based hybrid mortar. A durable, sustainable and cost-competitive product?
Abstract Automation through 3D printing can be a possible technological breakthrough in construction. However, the carbon footprint is not necessarily reduced as the print formulations consist of
Ultrasonication optimisation and microstructural characterisation for 3D nanoparticle dispersion in thermoplastic and thermosetting polymers
Abstract 3D nanoparticles are important as reinforcing or functional phase in polymer composite materials; however, an optimised deagglomeration and uniform distribution of these particles is
In-situ X-ray computed tomography of mode I delamination in carbon-epoxy composites: The effect of the interface ply orientation
