This manuscript presents a new approach to measure the cross sectional areas of elementary fibres using micro-computed tomography. The correct and accurate measurement of the area allows a correct characterization of the strength of the fibre. The accuracy and reliability of tomography was validated through the determination of cross-sectional areas of 3D-printed fibres at the micro level. Moreover, the non-linear behavior of elementary and technical hemp fibre samples were characterized, by combining standard tensile tests with a detailed full-field strain map at the micro scale during tensile loading.
