Abstract: X-ray computed tomography is a non-destructive testing technique that is widely used in the composites industry for the characterization of the various structures within a material. In this work, the challenges of scanning natural elements such as flax fibres or pine cone will be listed. For this type of materials, it is essential to know the absorption vs intensities in order to use the proper power to get thought the sample without washing out all the details. Tackling these challenges will help the identification of features such as the orientation of the fibres is important for estimation of the mechanical properties of composites and can be achieved with image processing techniques.
