Application of computer simulation in the stereology of materials

International Journal of Microstructure and Materials Properties (IJMMP), Vol. 4, No. 2, 2009

Abstract: Four applications of computer simulations in stereology are discussed and demonstrated: 1. systematic graphical classification of 3D tessellations with application to the grain size estimation based on the combination of profile and intercept counts with the coefficient of profile area variation; 2. simulation and estimation of double stochastic processes with application to cavity formation under high-temperature creep loading; 3. simulation of the intercrystalline fracture and stereology of fracture surfaces; 4. estimation of the anisotropy of simulated spatial fibre processes.
