Abstract JChainsAnalyser is a Java-based program for the analysis of two-dimensional images of magneto-rheological fluids (MRF) at low concentration of particles obtained using the video-microscopy technique. MRF are colloidal dispersions of micron-sized polarizable particles in a carrier fluid with medium to low viscosity. When a magnetic field is applied to the suspension, the particles aggregate forming chains or clusters. Aggregation dynamics [P. Domínguez-García, S. Melle, J.M. Pastor, M.A. Rubio... Title of program: JChainsAnalyser Catalogue Id: AEDT_v1_0 Nature of problem The video-microscopy technique usually produces quite a big quantity of images to analyse. Although ImageJ gives the required filters and methods for image analysis, it fails when a large number of images is used. Moreover, an adequate combination of filters is needed for the segmentation and binarization of this kind of images.
