Mean linear dendrite spacing in aluminum alloy 

A cast aluminum alloy is submitted for SDAS analysis.

Figure 1. Image of aluminum alloy at 100X.

Figure 2. The length of overlaid pattern that touches the dendrites is measured.  

CLEMEX SOLUTION FOR DENDRITE ARM SPACING

Reproducible detection and measurement of SDAS was performed using Clemex Vision image analysis software calibrated with a NIST-traceable stage micrometer.

RESULTS

Mean Linear Dendrite Spacing results table showing three essential properties that can be obtained using this Application Package. Analyzing multiple fields could give more representative results.
