Three-Dimensional Cement Microstructure Texture Synthesis Based on CUDA

  • 1734 Accesses

Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNISA,volume 9772)


Three-dimensional reconstruction of cement is becoming increasingly important in cement hydration. Although many physical experiments have been conducted on cement hydration, and various algorithms have been developed to simulate the cement hydration for a long term, few algorithms have been developed to synthesize the three-dimensional microstructure of cement. Thus, we improve the Tree-structure Vector Quantization algorithm, which is effective in Unified Device Architecture. Experimental results indicate that the synthesis process in the proposed method is shorter and easier to implement which providing the same outcomes.
