Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to describe the engineering features of industrial NDE image processing workstation software currently under development in the Iowa State University Electrical and Computer Engineering Department. The software package is designed for use on a generic image processing platform consisting of a commercially available UNIX workstation-class host computer interfaced to a frame grabber board and video camera, and incorporates image processing software developed at ISU’s Center for NDE. This image processing software has been developed for use on noisy, low-contrast x-ray images, and has demonstrated its ability to enhance and extract flaws in such images.
