Paper Abstract

A software is developed which enables reconstruction of the 3D shape of fracture surfaces without human assistance. It is based upon computer image processing and pattern recognition techniques by using a stereo-pair of scanning electron micrographs. The processing consists of two subprocesses: searching the matching points between two images and computation of heights using het relative shift of the matching points. By using the previously developed system, some mismatches were inevitable in the search process, in particular, for low-contrast SEM images such as striations, intergranular facets, and so on.
