Abstract : Microstructology is the science of the realistic and precise correlation of microstructure with the physical properties and processes of materials. Real microstructure of materials are always irregular in the sense that no two grains, or particles, in the structure are alike in size, shape or arrangement in space. Despite this irregularity, all of the parts fit together to form a continuous structure. Microstructology characterizes such structures by the exclusive use of the global parameters of geometry, some of which are drawn from the fields of Stereology. No geometric assumptions of any kind are permitted. The relationships and mechanisms are deduced rather than postulated. These are all revealed as a product of structural characterization in the course of physical change.
