Research of the internal structure of diabase samples by optical-acoustic and computer x-ray tomography

The paper examines the internal structure of overburden diabase specimens from the Pavlovskoye ore deposit. Petrographic and elemental analyzes were performed using a scanning electron microscope. The physical and mechanical parameters of the specimens were evaluated, including the ultimate uniaxial compressive strength, the ultimate tension strength, the modulus of elasticity, and Poisson’s ratio. The internal structure of the specimens was examined with X-ray and laser-ultrasonic tomography. We used a Bruker SkyScan tomograph with an X-ray source of 130 kV and a flat detector. The maximum size of the object under study was 140 mm, the resolution was not worse than 20 μm. The closed porosity was estimated, ranging from 0.01 to 1.38 %; the open porosity was from 0.32 to 0.48 %. Images of the internal structure of the diabase specimens were produced by a laser ultrasonic tomograph with a multichannel optoacoustic antenna. The images are given in three mutually perpendicular planes. We determined the geometry of internal defects, such as cracks about 200—300 microns long, related to decompaction between grains. It is shown that the dynamic elastic moduli can be determined from precise elastic wave velocity measurements.

Keywords: core, diabase, X-ray tomography, laser-ultrasound tomography, internal structure, electron microscopy, porosity, physical and mechanical properties.
