Grain Size 3

A measure of the areas or volumes of grains in a polycrystalline metal or alloy, usually expressed as as average when the individual sizes are fairly uniform. In metals containing two or more phases, the grain size refers to that of the matrix unless otherwise specified. Grain size is reported in terms of number of grains per unit area or volume, average diameter, or as a number derived from area measurements.
