Application of Computers to Quantitative Analysis of Microstructures
Evaluation of particle size and shape, a necessity for any stereological projection beyond volume fraction, requires continuity of observations over the section. Observations must be made on a dense raster at a resolution approximating that of the microscope, yielding up to one million observations per field. Such masses of data are obtainable only from automatic scanning equipment, and require computer processing of the image. (Figure 1)
