The HSC application
The examples of the typical problems solved with the help of Hardware-software complex "М-структура"
- the management of the atlas of microstructures
- searching and showing on the monitor(printing) images of the microstructures of the alloy by its brand, chemical compound (main component, full or partial list of the alloying elements and their concentration), processing, hardness, structural components, etch-used, image characteristics, and different combinations of these features
- creation of the collection of digital photos of the alloys' microstructures with detailed characteristic of the alloy and description of its microstructure, including the method of its production and studying. Herewith the database search engine can be used
- digitating the microphotos (positive and negative) and placing them in the database with the available information
- identification of the unknown alloy (or an alloy with the incomplete information about it) by its microstructure based on formalized description
- selection of the collections of alloys combined by any of the afore-mentioned features or by the combination of features for the reason of comparison of their micro and macrosructures
- incoming and outgoing control of the metal products. ( Element of certification)
- creation and maintenance of the information about microstructure of metal production
- education of the metallographer-beginner
- possibility of receiving any combination macro and microstructures of different alloys will allow to demonstrate the influence of the chemical compound, thermal processing, deformation, the method of revealing and other factos on the structural characteristics. Possibility of showing images from the microscope on the tv-screen.
