Quantitative Analysis of Primary Phase Morphology in Semi-Solid Alloys Based on LabVIEW and IMAQ Vision


Article Preview

This paper researched on metallographic image analysis of primary phase morphology in semi-solid alloys. The image processing and quantitative analysis system is based on labVIEW and IMAQ Vision. The system uses image processing and analysis technology, such as manual threshold, removing small particles and filling holes processing, edge detection and quantitative analysis of the volume fraction, size and shape of the primary solid. According to the testing results, this system has characteristics of less time-consuming, quick inspection speed and high measurement accuracy, which completely satisfies the requirements.
