Workshop on Methods for Three-Dimensional Microstructure Studies

August 17-19, 2022

8:30 a.m. - 8:00 p.m. ET

CMU Pittsburgh, Bosch Sparks Conference Room (Scott Hall 5201)


The Materials Science & Engineering Department of Carnegie Mellon University will host a workshop on 3D Microstructures in collaboration with the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) and Bluequartz Software.

The workshop is intended for researchers at all levels and will combine presentations on 3D microstructure science, as well as practical presentations on the tools and methods for reconstructing, analyzing, and synthesizing 3D microstructures. A particular focus of the workshop is on 3D orientation maps, constructed from EBSD serial sections, transmission X-ray measurements, or synthetic microstructures. Participants in the workshop will learn how to use Dream.3D, which is a freely available software package that performs a wide range of functions for reconstructions of 3D microstructures, statistical analysis and generation of representative volume elements. The package is tightly integrated with ParaView, which is a freely available visualization software tool. Both of these tools run on all standard computers.
