Introduction to Stereology and Quantitative Metallography – ASTM E 1245

ASTM E 1245 – A Stereological Procedure to Characterize Discrete Second-Phase Particles

Uses field and feature-specific measurements. While the measurements employ stereological parameters, they may be made on only one plane, for example, the longitudinal. If the threedimensional values are desired, then additional test planes must be assessed.
