Paper Abstract

A videogrammetric system is proposed for monitoring the 3-D deformation time history of a metal sheet surface during welding, which could not be achieved by traditional displacement sensors. Two commercial-grade digital video cameras are used for image acquisition. The major algorithms of the videogrammetric process such as target recognition, stereo matching, 3-D reconstruction, and target tracking, are discussed in detail. An improved self-calibration method based on a planar pattern is proposed and verified. Precision evaluation experiments prove that the proposed system could achieve an accuracy of 0.05 mm. Three welding deformation surveying experiments using different metal sheets are conducted to validate the performance of the videogrammetric system and the obtained data are compared with results from linear variable differential transducers. The agreement between videogrammetric and conventional results confirms the availability and reliability of the proposed videogrammetric system for monitoring dynamic welding deformation of metal sheets.
