Software measurement standards for areal surface texture parameters
Download (PDF 713 KB)
This poster describes reference software for the evaluation of areal surface texture parameters. The reference software is used as a benchmark against which measuring instrument software can be compared.
Differences between the results returned by the reference software with those reported by proprietary software packages for surface texture measurement are used to identify where algorithms and software for evaluating the parameters differ. The comparison might also be helpful in identifying where parameters are not sufficiently well defined in standards.
