chimera is an image analysis technology tailored for the analysis and quantification of micro and/or macrostructure material properties. The platform allows users to quantify and qualify information about the image characteristics and estimating their physical properties through simulation.
The tool supports importing images from different acquisition systems (optics and electronics microscopy, thermographic cameras, computed tomography, micro-tomography, laser scanning) and file formats, and through data manipulation derived from filtering, processing or mathematical modeling algorithms.
It is a robust software designed to work with large data sets organized in a cognitive user interface where the tools can be easily applied to one or multiple sources.
APPLICATIONSchimera presents a set of features which allow the rock characterization in oil reservoirs, the quantification of steel grain size and predict the ceramic materials characteristics.
FUEL CELLResearchers from Politecnico di Torino used chimera in a study conducted in the field of solid oxide fuel cell. The study results were published in the Journal of Power Sources.
