X-Ray CT-Scan Digitizing for the Inspection and Computational Analysis of Complex Engine Parts 980307

This paper deals with the problem of complex engine part analysis. It presents an original approach based on the use of X-ray Computed Tomography scan digitizing method. In comparison with classical digitizing method, Computed Tomography method proves to be the only solution in the case of complex parts with internal areas. A validation example for which the precision of the method is estimated, is proposed. At last, the potential of the method is illustrated through the complex example of an engine head cooling circuit for which a computational CFD calculation is made.
