A comparative study of methods of unfolding size distributions

Open Access

Practical experiments had indicated that errors obtained when unfolding particle size distributions from chord data were much greater than might be expected from reading the current stereological literature. Idealised experimental procedures were modelled in a computer program. The results confirm that, even with 'error-free measurements', the distortions in the frequency distributions produced would rule-out this method for most practical purposes.

A similar computer simulation was used to compare the results with those obtained from the Schwartz-Saltykov method.
