FGM Structure Characterization by Distance Functions and Systematic Scanning Method
The distance functions such as G(r), K(r), H(r), g(r) and systematic scanning method connected with variance analysis have been used for quantitative characterization of functionally gradient materials structures. The methods have been tested on computer generated 3D model polycrystalline structures with diverse type of gradient function. Usefulness of the presented methods for quantitative description of FGM structures has been evaluated.
