Microstructure quantification of a superplastic alumina

A set of Al2O3 samples were superplastically crept or stress-free annealed in identical conditions. Detailed quantitative microstructural evaluations of: grain sizes, shapes, orientations, coordination number and their distributions, were performed as well as determination od pair correlations of grain center coordinates. Small but presumably real differences are recorded between samples, depending upon deformation or direction of stress.
