Abstract

There are nonmedical applications for CT (computerized tomographic) scanner technology which are feasible and potentially important. The authors have identified several applications related to the general problem of measuring cross-sectional density distributions in two-phase flowing mixtures and have analyzed a general class of CT scanner designs which suit these applications. Specifically, this study reports the results of an analysis of CT scanners which (1) are appropriate for two-phase fluid density measurements, (2) are based on stationary detector array scanner designs, (3) incorporate a rotating isotopic fan-beam source, (4) permit continuous scanning of the object, and (5) can achieve 10 millisecond scan times.
