Abstract

There has been significant progress in theoretical stereology during past decade or so. The practical applications of stereology (at least in materials science) have not kept pace with the rapid theoretical advance: stereological measurements other than volume fraction and grain size are rarely used in materials science, although microstructure - properties - processing studies are of central importance! It is the purpose of this presentation to discuss some applications of stereology for the study of materials processes, where quantification of microstructure and its evolution has lead to useful information.

Keywords : Aluminum alloys, creep fracture, fractography, metal matrix composites, microcracks, recrystallization, sintering
