Industrial Tomography: Systems and Applications, Second Edition thoroughly explores the important techniques of industrial tomography and discusses image reconstruction, systems and applications. The goal of process tomography is to make sense and interpret complex data in order to extract qualitative and quantitative information of the behavior of fluids moving within processes. These processes may be reactors, pipelines or measurements focused on the properties of materials being manufactured. The text presents complex processes, including the way three-dimensional imaging is used to create multiple cross-sections, and how computer software helps monitor flows, filtering, mixing, drying processes, and chemical reactions inside vessels and pipelines.

In addition, this updated edition includes new techniques that enhance the reality and quality of electrical tomograms, unconventional diverse, derived and indirect tomography techniques, and data fusion methods. Readers will find a comprehensive discussion on the ways tomography systems can be used to optimize the performance of a wide variety of industrial processes.

Key Features

  • Provides a comprehensive discussion on the different formats of tomography, including advances in visualization and data fusion
  • Includes an excellent overview of image reconstruction using a wide range of applications
  • Presents a comprehensive discussion of tomography systems and their applications in a wide variety of industrial processes
