Abstract

This study presents the quantitative evaluation of heterogeneity using the characteristic dimension. We propose the modified two-point correlation method to extract the ‘characteristic and representative size’ embedded in rocks applicable to both gray-level and binary images from 3D x-ray computed tomographic images. The method is validated by using a wide range of synthetic images and is applied to 6 rock specimens collected in Korea. Results highlight that the proposed method enables quantitatively defining the representative size in rocks.
