Image Reconstruction and Analysis of Three-Dimensional Fracture Surfaces Based on the Stereo Matching Method
A computer program of the fractal analysis by the box-counting method was developed for the estimation of the fractal dimension of the three-dimensional fracture surface reconstructed by the stereo matching method. The image reconstruction and fractal analysis were then made on the fracture surfaces of materials created by different mechanisms. There was a correlation between the fractal dimension of the three-dimensional fracture surface and the fractal dimensions evaluated by other methods on ceramics and metals. The effects of microstructures on the fractal dimension were also experimentally discussed.
