A new approach to porous materials features evaluation is proposed in the paper. The method consists in computer analysis of microscope images of porous material sections. Instead of individual pores analysis, in this approach global morphological spectra (MS) of the images are examined. It is shown that MS contain full information about the morphological structure of the porous material section. Porosity evaluation is then formulated as a statistical MS classification task and a method of its solution is proposed.
