A Data-Constrained 3D Model for Material Compositional Microstructures
A mathematical model has been developed for predicting material compositional microstructures using measured data as constraints. Examples of measured data include 3-D sets of tomography data, 2-D sets of compositional data on surfaces and sections, and material absorption and interaction properties. The model has been partially implemented as a MS-Windows application. Reasonable agreement has been obtained between the numerical predictions from the software and the simulated data. The predicted microstructures could be used to study various material properties such as porosity distribution, diffusion and corrosion.
