Research Group Computed Tomography


We engage in problems of the industry concerning defect detection and quality assureance of materials and components using industrial computed tomography (CT).

Computed tomography is the only method with which it is possible to look inside materials an components without influencing their further use or changing their shape - nondestructively. The inner structures are reconstructed and virtually illustrated without damaging the samples.

The research group "Computed Tomography" at the Wels Campus is part of the University of Applied Sciences Upper Austria and was established in 2004. Meanwhile the department with its 12 employees and several student apprentices has grown in size over the years and become one of the biggest reserach group within the university.
