Paper Abstract

This paper presents a fractal dimension calculation technique of highway pavement which is used to detect the pavement cracking. Firstly, the impulse noises generated by pavement unevenness are eliminated by the use of median filtering of pavement image. Secondly, the fractal dimension of fissure is calculated according to the crack's fractal feature. Finally, the pavement damage is detected and located with respect to fractal dimension. These three steps can realize the location detection and damage rate computation of pavement damage successfully. To a number of random images, the experiment results show that the fractal dimension of pavement crack region is from 2.25 to 2.99 basically.
