- Segmentation possibilities with VGSTUDIO MAX 3.0
In order to define different components, materials, etc., Volume Graphics software offers you powerful yet easy-to-use segmentation tools. You will get an insight of how to segment volume data sets into individual parts or regions of interest quickly.
- Introduction to the Foam Structure Analysis Module
The Foam Structure Analysis Module for VGSTUDIO MAX makes it possible to determine cell or granular structures of materials, ranging from synthetically manufactured materials to naturally occurring foam structures, porous structures in geomaterials, or sand columns, for example. With this module, you can segment the volume data into single cells/grains, struts, and contact surfaces and obtain numerous statistical values for further analysis.
- Demonstration of fluid flow simulation studies with VGSTUDIO MAX 3.0
The Transport Phenomena Module for VGSTUDIO MAX 3.0 allows you to perform pore-scale flow and diffusion simulations on data such as CT scans of soil and rock samples or other porous or multi-component materials. You will see how to perform microstructure level virtual experiments directly on CT scans of a geomaterial – with no meshing required. Homogenized material properties are calculated, like absolute permeability, tortuosity, formation factor, or porosity. We will also show you how to compute the pore size distribution and the capillary pressure drainage curve in a virtual MICP (mercury injection capillary pressure) experiment.
Attendees must bring their own laptops fulfilling the minimum system requirements*) for course participation, and install our software VGSTUDIO MAX 3.0 in advance. How to obtain the installation package and a temporary license will be e-mailed to registered participants about one week before the workshop.
*) The minimum system requirements for your laptops are:
PC Intel® Core™2 Duo, 8 GB RAM, high-end graphics card with a 1280 x 1024 resolution monitor, Windows 7, 64-bit system, 3-button mouse with scroll wheel. More detailed information can be found on our website www.volumegraphics.com/en/support/system-requirements.html.
If you want to make the most out of VGSTUDIO MAX, or don't have access to a laptop fulfilling the system requirements, please take part in one of our training courses, which you can find via our website. We even offer special trainings dedicated to the scientific use of VGSTUDIO MAX.
Duration: 4:30 h (including a coffee break)
