voxel

[′väks·əl]
(computer science)
The smallest box-shaped part of a three-dimensional image or scan. Derived from volume pixel.

voxel

(jargon)
(By analogy with "pixel") Volume element.

The smallest distinguishable box-shaped part of a three-dimensional space. A particular voxel will be identified by the x, y and z coordinates of one of its eight corners, or perhaps its centre. The term is used in three dimensional modelling.

voxel

(VOlume piXEL) A three-dimensional pixel. A voxel represents a quantity of 3D data just as a pixel represents a point or cluster of points in 2D data. It is used in scientific and medical applications that process 3D images.

The selection of the RVE needs to satisfy the scale of the representative volume element being much smaller than the characteristic scale of the structure, and the scale of the representative volume element should be much larger than the average scale of the nonuniform hole.
