Master internship : Microstructural analysis of bio-based granular packing using X-ray microtomography
Biobased materials made from plant particles offer great potential for building insulation, particularly in terms of reducing environmental impact. The aim of the internship is to characterise the 3D microstructure biobased granular packings (sunflower pith particles) through a quantitative analysis of X-ray microtomography images previously obtained at the Synchrotron Soleil. In particular, one objective is to identify relevant microstructural properties that relate to the material’s multiphysical performance. Image processing procedures may be based on artificial intelligence techniques (deep learning model). Additional observations may be carried out using the laboratory microtomograph, depending on the progress of the internship. For more information, click here.
