Abstract: The US Army Research Laboratory is developing a Multi-Energy Flash Computed Tomography (MEFCT) diagnostic that will be used to capture tomographic image(s) of dynamic events. To accomplish dynamic tomography, the diagnostic uses numerous source—detector pairs to accumulate fifteen 2-D images, which are subsequently used for reconstruction of up to three 3-D tomograms spaced in time. This work assesses the robustness of the support structure that houses the 15 source—detector pairs, quantifies real-time measurements of source and detector movement during blast loading, and addresses the implications of these movements on the reconstruction process.
