Bronze gradient filter data
These data represent a spatially inhomogeneous pattern of circular section profiles of particles, observed in a longitudinal plane section through a gradient sinter filter made from bronze powder, prepared by Ricardo Bernhardt, Dresden. The material was produced by sedimentation of bronze powder with varying grain diameter and subsequent sintering, as described in Bernhardt et al. (1997). The data are supplied as a marked point pattern of circle centres marked by circle radii. The coordinates of the centres and the radii are recorded in mm. The field of view is an $18 \times 7$ mm rectangle. The data were first analysed by Hahn et al. (1999).
