3D X-ray tomography scans of analogues for magmatic mushes with different particle geometries (NERC Grant NE/M018687/2)

Each of this set of 3D X-ray tomography datasets show a particle “bead pack” developed as a magmatic mush analogues but of use to anyone investigating non-spherical systems. The stack of tiff images in each 3D dataset show either cuboid, rod and disc/plate like particles as well as irregular shapes and mixtures of these. The data were used to measure packing geometries, contact areas, and pore volumes, surface areas and connectivity, and perform permeability simulation used to develop advanced porosity-permeability relationships for any bead packing geometry. The data were collected on a Nikon XCT scanner with the exact imaging condition for each scan presented in the txt settings file in each folder (including x-ray energy, flux and resolution information). The data may be of use to those developing advanced finite element, discrete element or flow models in complex packed beds.
