I'm new to MATLAB and am trying to understand the strel operation.

 Accepted answer has some details about the non-flat structuring elements. In one line, flat strels have a common weight for each pixel in it, and non-flat strels are weighted. The 'ball' strel in particular has highest weight at the center, and tapers down uniformly towards the edges. As to which one is better, I suppose it is application specific.

That makes sense. Thanks.
