Carbon fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP) is an extremely strong and lightweight plastic of which the strength depends on the distribution of its fibers. Fiber bundles can be visualized by means of phase contrast X-ray computed tomography (PCCT) based on grating-based interferometry (GBI). However, many steps are involved in the reconstruction of GBI-PCCT images. In this abstract, a workflow for the reconstruction of 3D CFRP phase contrast images based on GBI projection data is presented.
