We review here a recently developed method rooted in X-ray physics and continuum micromechanics, which allows for translation of data from computed tomography at micrometre resolution (known as microCT data) into finite element models. The method comprises two steps: first, the attenuation information contained in each voxel of a microCT image is converted into the voxel-specific material composition. Secondly, material composition information enters a ...
