Paper Abstract

This paper discusses the use of image processing techniques for monitoring the performance of a sealing ring for an aircraft actuator. Methods of processing the images of a deforming seal ring and the mathematical relations between the computer acquired Cartesian images to the axisymmetric ring geometry are presented. Some of the features which allow the accurate interpretation of the images are discussed. The results obtained show the deformation of a seal ring under a hydrodynamic environment that exists in the actuator.
