Digital twins for image and video analysis of granular media.


Granular media are widely used in many industrial applications and fields of science from physics to chemistry, biology or agronomy. In energy, power and chemical engineering systems, in particular, it is generally desired to extract information on geometrical characteristics and on spatial distribution from 2D images of the population of particles/grains involved in the process. For example in pharmaceutics, the size and the shape of crystals of active ingredients are known to have a considerable impact on the final quality of products, such as drugs. As another example, the performance of fuel cells (SOFC/SOEC) is mainly related to the electrode microstructure (size and spatial distribution of the solid and porous phase). The purpose of this talk is then to show different ways (deterministic and stochastic methods using digital twins) of image processing, analysis and modeling to geometrically characterize such granular media from 2-D or 3-D images/videos. The developed methods will be presented by addressing different issues: overlapping, projection, blur... The methods are mainly based on image enhancement, restoration, segmentation, tracking, modeling, feature detection, stereology, stochastic geometry, pattern recognition and machine learning. The methods will be particularly illustrated on real applications of crystallization processes (for pharmaceutics industry), multiphase flow processes (for nuclear industry) and fuel cell power systems (for energy industry).
