Experimental methods that enable 3D characterization have undergone dramatic improvements in the past decade, due in large part to advances in both computing power and visualization and analysis software that have been enabling factors for both the collection and interpretation of these massive data sets. The 3D data collection process requires significantly more effort compared to conventional 2D analysis, which has spurred the development of fully automated instruments that are capable of collecting such information (Alkemper and Voorhees 2001; Spowart et al.

To establish those limitations, one might produce cast bars (having net sections much larger than the airfoils themselves) from which test specimens are prepared to evaluate creep and fatigue properties at a macroscopic scale. While a single primary crystallographic orientation and the secondary dendrite arm spacing may be evaluated for those bars, efforts rarely track/control other aspects of Microstructure–Property Relationships in the Simulation Era: An Introduction 19 microstructure. Thus, the processing–properties–design paradigm employed in this case implicitly assumes that: (1) the cast microstructure of those specimens represents the same microstructures found in the turbine blade configurations, (2) the stochastic variations of properties within populations of tested specimens encompasses the property variations occurring within turbine blades and, (3) perhaps most importantly, that each of the microstructural details controlling properties is a homogeneous or equal-likelihood-of-occurrence entity over the configuration of the turbine blade.
