Paper Abstract

Morphological processing combined with other techniques is used to analyze disordered structures. Disordered structures can consists of a number of objects of a given shape (the task is to determine the number of objects and their length and orientation distribution) or texture (this occurs when the number of particles is large) and the task is to describe the texture and to discriminate different textures. To solve such problems, we employ a new morphological skeletonization algorithm, a Hough Transform together with morphological operations, morphological erosions with directional structuring elements, and develop new parameters to describe and distinguish textures. Our algorithms can be implemented in digital or optical processors.
