Stereological analysis of particle characteristics

Open Access

Attached document(s)



Important characteristics of particles are their size, specific surface and shape. The stereological parameters available to quantify these three attributes are discussed, both for loose particles and particles contained within a matrix. A shape parameter for particle roughness is developed, showing that a more complicated function expresses the roughness characteristics better than a simple function.
