A Comparison of Previous HitFourierNext Hit and Fractal Techniques in the Analysis of Closed Forms

Stephen K. Kennedy, Wei-Hsiung Lin


Forty-one samples of quartz sand grains derived from four different sources are analyzed using Previous HitFourierNext Hit grain-shape and multi-component fractal techniques. The results from the two techniques are sufficiently similar to demonstrate clearly the potential usefulness of the fractal-based technique in the analysis of sedimentary particles. Additionally, the fact that the fractal technique is shown to extract information from shapes suitable for analysis via a radius expansion method lends credence to the expectation that it will yield comparable information when applied to more complex shapes not amenable to the radius expansion Previous HitFourierTop technique.
