Abstract We present a program that generates the two-dimensional micrographs of a three dimensional grain microstructure. The code utilizes a novel scanning, pixel mapping technique to secure statistical distributions of surface areas, grain sizes, aspect ratios, perimeters, number of nearest neighbors and volumes of the randomly nucleated particles. The program can be used for comparing the existing theories of grain growth, and interpretation of two-dimensional microstructure of three-dimensional sa... Title of program: MIKROGRAF Catalogue Id: ADBM_v1_0 Nature of problem Calculation of quantities of stereological interest, such as statistical distributions of surface areas, grain sizes, aspect ratios, perimeters, number of nearest neighbours and volumes of the individual particles as observed in a microscope and graphical simulation of a typical 2D micrograph.
