ESTIMATION OF FIBRE ORIENTATION FROM DIGITAL IMAGES

Salme Kärkkäinen, Eva B Vedel Jensen

Abstract

In this paper, estimation of fibre orientation is studied for fibre systems observable as a blurred greyscale image. The estimation method is based on scaled variograms observed along a set of sampling lines in different directions. The parameters of the orientation distribution are obtained numerically. Simulated data are used to study the statistical properties of the method.
