Accident response -- X-ray to virtual environment

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The Engineering Sciences and Applications (ESA) Division of Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) has been working to develop a process to extract topographical information from digital x-ray data for modeling in a Computer Aided Design (CAD) environment and translation into a virtual environment. The application for this process is the evolution of a field deployable tool for use by the Accident Response Group (ARG) at the Laboratory. The authors have used both CT Scan and radiography data in their process development. The data is translated into a format recognizable by Pro/ENGINEER{trademark} and then into a virtual environment that can be ... continued below

They have successfully taken both CT Scan and radiograph data of single components and created solid and virtual environment models for interrogation.
