Published in: International Journal of Signal and Imaging Systems Engineering
Abstract: The paper presents a novel approach for the detection and classification of flaws in weld images is presented. This method has been applied for detecting and discriminating flaws in welds that may correspond to false alarms or possibly all nine types of weld defects (slag inclusion, wormhole, porosity, incomplete penetration, under cuts, cracks, lack of fusion, weaving fault slag line), after being successfully tested on more than 180 radiographic images. The procedure to detect all the types of flaws and feature extraction is implemented by the segmentation algorithm. Classification is carried out by the counter-propagation neural network.
