Abstract (in english)
   In recent decades, non-destructive methods of materials analysis (Desrues 2006) have been used increasingly for the study of different kinds of materials. Especially, it concerns the method of the X-ray computed tomography (CT). This technique was invented in 1970's (Hounsfield 1972) and it quickly became an indispensable part of medicine. In the 1980's, this success in medicine encouraged the research and development of the X-ray CT applications in the field of materials engineering and consequently also in the field of geomaterials (Otani, Obara 2004). Nowadays, many applications are possible due to high resolution of individual building units in the tomographic cross-sections (so called voxels) with dimensions of units or tens of micrometres. To get this resolution, the use of the 2D and the 3D high-resolution X-ray CT, or the micro-CT with micro-focal sources of X-rays, and suitable linear or flat (2D) X-Ray detectors are preferred.
