Abstract:

A new technique using multiple flash x-ray sources for the determination of cross-sectional density profiles of rapidly translating or dynamically deforming objects is presented. The method, and extension of the concepts of medial tomography, allows stop-action survey of events with time constants at the low end of the microsecond range, making it suitable for problems of ballistic research and materials proof testing. This report discusses the design, the components, the capabilities, as well as the system studies which led up to the configuration which is under construction at BRL. Keywords include Computer tomography Microsecond tomography Flash X-ray and Solid state detector.
