Two methods are proposed for estimating the number of separated particles within a solid structure per unit volume of structure, Nv. Apart from being arranged with independence of any size parameter, no special assumptions upon the size, shape and orientation of the particles are made. The first method is based on the identity NV = (NA)u . microunits-1, where (NA)u is the mean number of particle sections per unit area of a plane probe Tu which is uniform random within the structure and… CONTINUE READING
