Abstract This paper presents the results of X-ray CT imaging of the microstructure of sand particles subjected to high pressure one-dimensional compression leading to particle crushing. A high resolution X-ray CT machine capable of in situ imaging was employed to capture images of the whole volume of a sand sample subjected to compressive stresses up to 79.3 MPa. Images of the whole sample obtained at different load stages were analysed using a commercial image processing software Avizo to reveal various microstructural properties, such as pore and particle volume distributions, spatial distribution of void ratios, relative breakage, and anisotropy of particles.
