A 3D X-ray CT method was developed using a combination of a micro-focus X-ray generator and an image intensifier camera. An image processor used produced 2D projection data for CT imaging. The channel number of the data was 1024, and the slicing number was up to 200. A micro-focus X-ray generator was used and image-magnifying method was carried out to imaging porous ceramic materials. Using obtained 3D CT images, voxel mesh method was carried out with mathematical homogenization method. Complicated structures of porous materials were taken into the simulation process as an image-based modeling. Equivalent homogenized elastic constants were calculated for the microscopic porous models, and global macroscopic stress and local stress distribution in porous materials were calculated with the simulation method. This simulation method was considered to be applicable to much larger porous materials of piping and construction.
