Table of Contents

  • CONTENTS INCLUDE: Part One - Introduction to Process Tomography and assessment of industrial needs. Part Two - Description of techniques, including electrical sensing, (capacitance, resistance, inductance and triboelectric), ultrasonic sensing, optical sensing, emission tomography. Part Three - Data processing techniques required for image reconstruction, often at high speeds necessary for on-line process applications. The need for parallel processing and implications for sensor design. Finally, a description of the techniques used for quality assurance in process tomography imaging. Part Four is a major aspect of the book - featuring a wide range of applications and practical results of the techniques detailed above, including those to particulate flows,
    fluidized beds, mixing transport and separation processes and combustion systems.
