Pagination or Media Count:
The US Army Research Laboratory is developing a Multi-Energy Flash Computed Tomography MEFCT diagnostic that will be used to capture tomographic images of dynamic events. To accomplish dynamic tomography, the diagnostic uses numerous sourcedetector pairs to accumulate fifteen 2-D images, which are subsequently used for reconstruction of up to three 3-D tomograms spaced in time. This work assesses the robustness of the support structure that houses the 15 sourcedetector pairs, quantifies real-time measurements of source and detector movement during blast loading, and addresses the implications of these movements on the reconstruction process.
