  • Patent number: 9557299
    Abstract: According to aspects of the present disclosure, features of interest in materials are analyzed. The method comprises capturing a morphology of the feature of interest on a surface or an interior of a material under evaluation. The method also comprises selecting targeted spatial locations on the surface or the interior of the material under evaluation based upon the captured morphology. Also, the method comprises capturing information about the local state (e.g., crystallographic orientation) of the surface or the interior of the sample at the selected targeted spatial locations. Still further, the method comprises using the captured local state information to fill in the non-targeted spatial locations in the material corresponding to the captured morphology and or topology.

  • Patent number: 9070203
    Abstract: The identification and quantification of microtextured regions in orientation datasets is provided through the use of microstructure informatics based on n-point correlation functions, dimensionality reduction techniques, and a computer algebra system. Orientation information is extracted for materials and processing is performed on the orientation information along with other ancillary data that accompanies each piece of orientation information and a hybrid descriptor of orientation is formed. Representative descriptors are identified such that regions of microtexture are classified. This classification is mapped back onto the real space of the sample and a local clustering is done to identify continuous regions of microtexture. These labeled continuous regions of microtexture then provide a method for segmentation of the orientation data into their respective macrozones.
