Considering existing microscopical techniques to study microstructures of materials, one can find that non-destructive information from the internal structure of an object in natural conditions can be obtained by transmission X-ray microscopy. Combination of X-ray transmission technique with tomographical reconstruction allows to get three-dimensional information about the internal microstructure. In this case any internal area can be reconstructed as a set of flat cross sections which can be used to analyse the two- and three-dimensional morphological parameters. For X-ray methods the contrast in the images is a mixed combination of density and compositional information which provides means for non-destructive reconstruction of the internal structure. The paper presents experimental results of crack propagation and fibre bridging glass fibre epoxy samples that were collected in-situ during loading in a X-ray scanner.
