Mr Jakobus Hoffman (Necsa)


Computer Tomography (CT) has been used extensively in the past to study a variety of samples including coal. This MSc-study will determine the validity of the CT technique specifically with regard to coal research by optimizing a general CT system, characterizing coal non-destructively and observing and studying the gasification process.
