Within the TomoFuma project we investigate and develop new materials for energy applications, e.g. filters, heat insulation materials, soft magnetic composits, LEDs, etc. We also provide tomography services. If you would like to study parts and components in a non-destructive way, please contact us.

Work packages carried out within the TomoFuma Project are:
Micro-structured materials are becoming more and more important in energy applications. Efficient use of energy and the development of sustainable energy technologies are key challenges of the 21st century. Examples for micro-structured materials are:
Due to their complex micro geometry, theoretical predictions about material properties of micro structured materials is extremely difficult, experimental investigations are time consuming and expensive.
The method of tomography based numerical simulation (TBNS) addresses these issues efficiently by tomographically measuring the micro geometry and subsequently numerically simulation physical behavior.
TBNS is a highly successful tool for investigation heat and mass transport ins porous micro-structured materials. It is currently being extended to other physical phenomena. Mechanical properties, fluid flow, electric and magnetic behavior, as well as transient thermal properties are investigated. Optimization procedures are developed..
