MAVI comes with a set of algorithms enabling the segmentation of three dimensional image data of powders and particles. Common questions e.g. regarding the shape or size distributions of these objects can be addressed. Length, width, and height of complex shaped particles can be derived robustly from the edge lengths of the minimal bounding cuboid.
In the ZIM project "Development of innovative high performance grout based on the criteria of grain shape through new 3D image data measuring and analyzing techniques" the Fraunhofer ITWM develops algorithms for a robust and as far as possible automatic extraction of the compound's important parameters from 3D image data.
