Abstract

A design-based stereological method is presented which enables the unbiased estimation of mean length per unit volume and of the angle distribution of spatial fibre processes from arbitrarily directed pairs of registered parallel optical sections. The theory is illustrated by an application where the directional distribution of glass fibres is monitored in a stepwise extruded polymer composite by the stereological evaluation of data obtained by confocal scanning laser microscopy.
