Abstract

If a particle system in a material's microstructure is considered as a random set with a particle density NV, the parallel plane sections may be described by a stationary stochastic process. A stereological equation derived for this model by Bodziony and Kraj which satisfies the process parameters and the particle density NV is a basis for the NV-estimation by the coupled plane sections (CPS). Studies of a Nimonic alloy matrix grain structure in a series of parallel sections indicate the compatibility of the model with the structure. The NV-estimation result obtained is comparable with that given by the disector.
