An Investigation in Image Retrieval for Analysing Welding Defects

By Raoul Pascal Pein, Joan Lu and John Birger Stav


The development of new approaches in image processing\ud and retrieval provides several opportunities in supporting\ud in different domains. The group of welding engineers frequently\ud needs to conduct visual inspections to assess the quality\ud of weldings. It is investigated, if this process can be supported\ud by different kinds of software. A generic CBIR system\ud has been successfully used to sort welding photographs\ud according to the severity of visual faults. Similar algorithms\ud were used to automatically spot and measure the diameter of\ud gas pores
