Data-driven and Automatic Surface Texture Analysis Using Persistent Homology

  title={Data-driven and Automatic Surface Texture Analysis Using Persistent Homology},
  author={Melih C. Yesilli and Firas A. Khasawneh},
Surface roughness plays an important role in analyzing engineering surfaces. It quantifies the surface topography and can be used to determine whether the resulting surface finish is acceptable or not. Nevertheless, while several existing tools and standards are available for computing surface roughness, these methods rely heavily on user input thus slowing down the analysis and increasing manufacturing costs. Therefore, fast and automatic determination of the roughness level is essential to… 


Multiscale roughness analysis of engineering surfaces: A comparison of methods for the investigation of functional correlations
Abstract This study investigates the correlations between the topography of different damaged rough surfaces and process conditions. Several surfaces are measured and compared to determine if they
Processing roughness of sanded wood surfaces
Any quantitative evaluation of a sanded surface requires that the data be filtered to remove form errors and waviness. Wood surfaces contain irregularities due to both the sanding process and the
Texture recognition by the methods of topological data analysis
Abstract High spatial resolution satellite images are different from Gaussian statistics of counts. Therefore, texture recognition methods based on variances become ineffective. The aim of this paper
Two-dimensional fast Fourier transform and power spectrum for wear particle analysis
Abstract Statistical parameters, such as R a and R q , have been widely used to investigate the roughness of wear particle surfaces in the literature. It has been reported that wear particle analysis
Approximating Continuous Functions on Persistence Diagrams Using Template Functions
This paper describes a mathematical framework for featurizing the persistence diagram space using template functions, and discusses two example realizations of these functions: tent functions and Chybeyshev interpolating polynomials.
Persistence Images: A Stable Vector Representation of Persistent Homology
This work converts a PD to a finite-dimensional vector representation which it is called a persistence image, and proves the stability of this transformation with respect to small perturbations in the inputs.
Detailed surface roughness characterization of engineering surfaces undergoing tribological testing leading to scuffing
Abstract Controlled tribological scuffing experiments were conducted on typical engineering surfaces (Al390-T6 discs and 52100 steel pins) under starved lubrication conditions (a mixture of R410A
Recent advances in separation of roughness, waviness and form
Engineering surfaces are comprised of a range of spatial wavelengths. Filtering techniques are commonly adopted to separate the different wavelength components into well-defined bandwidths. Filtering
A User’s Guide to Topological Data Analysis
Topological data analysis (TDA) is a collection of powerful tools that can quantify shape and structure in data in order to answer questions from the data’s domain. This is done by representing some
Evaluation of alternative spectral feature extraction methods of textural images for multivariate modelling
Fast and automatic strategies for extraction of characteristic feature spectra from digital images are investigated. We present a study based on images from confocal laser scanning microscopy (CLSM)
