Depth of Decarburization of Steel

One image of decarburized steel is submitted to measure the depth of decarburization according to ASTM E1077.

Figure 1. The original image of decarburized steel at 200X. Two decarburization layers can be observed (Top: Partial or complete decarburization; Middle: Partial decarburization).

Figure 2. Two decarburization layers transform into measuring lines and overlay against the original image.

PURPOSE

Demonstrate the ability of the Clemex Vision image analysis can discriminate and measure the depth of decarburized layers. The methods and operations used are discussed in the report linked at the bottom of this page (click the Download PDF link below).

RESULTS

Length measurement is performed on two decarburization layers according to ASTM E1077. Automated statistics and graph are generated. Final results can be printed directly from Clemex Vision. Raw data are linked to their respective objects for validation purpose.
