Stereo Examination of Fracture Surfaces
Stereo Examination of Fracture SurfacesAlthough electron micrographs of fracture surfaces (especially scanning electron micrographs) have a three-dimensional appearance, due to the great depth of field of the instruments, a much better feeling of the depth profile can be obtained by stereo imaging the surface (see App. 1A). Such pictures are easy to obtain. They require taking a picture of the region of interest, then tilting the specimen a few degrees and photographing the new image of the same area. The two pictures are then appropriately arranged and viewed with a stereo viewer to bring out the depth detail.The added information obtained…
