Paper Abstract

Many trials have been proposed to measure inner diameter of pipes and/or holes. However most of them are classified into contact methods with any kind of stylus. Here we propose to measure inner diameter and profile of pipes using a ring beam device which consists of a conical mirror. and LD. The beam from the LD is directed to the top of the conical mirror which is precisely fabricated in angle and polished so as to form a ring beam for optical sections of the inner wall. This optically sectioned profile is analyzed to calculate the inner diameter and/or profile. In addition to pipes such as water mains and sewers, engine blocks for automobiles are tested to measure the inner size of cylinders and to find defects of inner surfaces.
