These are very widely used in characterizing the material. Various phases in an alloy system are quantified and the extents of their presence are correlated to the properties like strength, corrosion resistance, stability of the material, etc.
The micro structure reveals the grain structure whether as cast, wrought, heat treated or subjected to any special treatment such as carburizing, hardening etc.
This also reveals the presence of carbides particularly Chromium carbide which is a matter of concern in high chromium, nickel alloys.
