Executive Summary

The aim of this report is to review the literature on 3D particle characterization. It is structured into three major parts:

- 3D digital image acquisition of particles

- 3D digital image analysis of particles

- 3D digital image modelling of particles

These three chapters are intimately linked because the quality of the image acquisition is central in the accuracy of any image analysis and because image analysis itself is essential for development of realistic particle modelling software.
