Abstract

Stereological parameters characterizing structural components of WC-Co type sintered carbides of various (fine, coarse and super-coarse) structure were assessed. Empirical equations relating structure and properties (coercive force) of these materials were verified. The obtained result, enabled recommendation of quantitative metallography and automatic image analysis as method of accurate assessment of sintered carbides microstructure.
