The following overview is excerpted from: Ketcham, R.A. (2005b) Three-dimensional grain fabric measurements using high-resolution X-ray computed tomography. Journal of Structural Geology, 27, 1217-1228 and Ketcham, R.A., and Ryan, T. (2004) Quantification and visualization of anisotropy in trabecular bone. Journal of Microscopy, 213, 158-171.

Quant3D is a versatile program that can be used to analyze fabrics in any three-dimensional data set; examples include quantification of anisotropy in trabecular bone (Ketcham and Ryan, 2004; Ryan and Ketcham, 2005) and textural analysis of metamorphic rocks (Ketcham, 2005b). Fabric tensors are produced based on the star volume distribution (SVD), star length distribution (SLD), and mean intercept length (MIL) methods. Principal component directions and magnitudes are provided by the tensors, providing the degree of anisotropy and shape indices of the phase of interest. Three-dimensional rose diagrams are a unique feature implemented in Quant3D for analyzing non-orthogonal directional fabric components; they are VRML-format graphics files that can be rotated and viewed interactively.

Example of fabric analysis of quartzofeldspathic layers using Quant3D. In (a) the scan data are first segmented to isolate the material of interest, in this case garnet (white), biotite + kyanite (gray), and quartz + feldspar (black). ‘Star’ analyses proceed by placing a series of points within the material of interest, and measuring the distance from each point to the material boundary in many directions (red lines). Only two dimensions shown here, but measurements are actually made in 3D. The analysis directions are uniformly distributed in three dimensions on a grid defined by the line intersections on the sphere shown in (b). To create a 3D rose diagram, each intersection in (b) is projected from the origin by its relative star volume component value (c). Colors are assigned based on SVD/Max(SVD), and color coding from 0 (violet) to 1 (red) (from Ketcham, 2005b).


3D rose diagrams showing relative SVD component magnitudes for quartz + plagioclase (upper row) and garnet (lower row) in sample MD generated in Quant3D. First diagram in each row (a,d) is viewed down the ‘Up’ axis; second diagram (b,c) is viewed along the second eigenvector, and third (c,f) is an arbitrary orientation. The diagrams are stored in VRML 97 format, and can be viewed interactively with a number of software applications and browser plug-ins (from Ketcham, 2005b).
