Abstract:
An automatic quantitative image analysis (AQIA) software system has been developed to quantify constituents in multiple phase materials, such as hardened cement and concrete. Some major features of AQIA are presented. The applications of AQIA to cement and concrete research are explored. The system is expected to provide a more versatile, and more reliable means than the manual microscope examination. It is much less expensive than existing hardware-type image analyzers, and specially designed for materials use.
