We propose a framework to analyse the shape and orientation of particle populations under minimal assumptions on the shape of the particles, i.e. we do not restrict to elliptical shapes or the like. To each particle we associate its volume tensor of rank two. The aim is to obtain information about the volume tensor distribution and to propose methods to compare particle populations based on this information.
