Paper Abstract

Many important quality tests on materials and components are made by visual assessment. Operators use microscopes to make visual assessments to describe, for example, the non-metallic inclusion content of steel or the grain size in a variety of materials. Human inspectors frequently have to watch miles of fast moving strips of paper, steel, cloth and other materials to spot and record visible defects. Also, Exr example, electron micrographs are examined to determine particle size distributions and radiographs are inspected visually to evaluate porosity.
