Unformatted text preview: Acta Materialla , Volume 49, pp. 1225-1235. This paper includes various microscopic examination techniques we discussed in class including SEM, TEM and optical microscopy including several excellent images of microstructural features. The assessment of mechanical properties via tensile test (yield strength, % elongation etc) is also discussed. By relating the microstructural features to the material properties, one may predict the engineering performance of materials from simple observation under an optical microscope and computer analysis of the digitized photomicrograph assessing (grain size distribution, symmetry, microporosity etc.)...
