The connectivity of the pore network in the SiC/SiCN material is assumed to be very high since pyrolysis leads to a shrinkage of the matrix therefore leading to cracks throughout the matrix. In order to prove this assumption, a labeling of the objects in a smaller region of interest (1 x 1 x 0.5) mm3 of the binary volume is performed.
What does "binary volume" mean?
I can't find this notion at all. Maybe someone has assumptions what it can be?
