Studies on quantitative analysis of image structures were performed; the analysis was indispensable to computer-aided-material-designing and fracture analysis.
After examining various quantitative methods, we used the improved face method which transformedimage structures to "the human face" and obtained satisfactory results.
The procedure is as follows:
(1) Define "the face" in case of no image structures.
(2) Extract information from image structures.
(3) Obtain "the face" corresponding to image structures by deforming "the face" of (1) on the basis of the information of (2).
