Among natural cellular materials, pomelo peels, having a foam-like hierarchical microstructure, represent an ideal model for developing materials with high energy absorption efficiency. In this work, by combining X-ray tomographic imaging technique and digital volume correlation (DVC), in-situ stepwise uniaxial compression tests were performed to quantify the internal morphological evolution and kinematic responses of pomelo peel samples during compression.

How Amira-Avizo Software is used
(…) based on these acquired volume images, Avizo software and DVC were employed to determine the corresponding microstructural changes and internal full-field deformations, respectively.
