Edge Detection for Cement Images Based on Interactive Genetic Algorithm
The cement is a type of cementious material which hydration is an extremely complex process. In order to research the evolution of particles during cement hydration, the particles should be differentiated from cement images. However, the existence of partial volume effect and similarity of intensity between different phases causes the boundaries of particles are not clear. Therefore, it is difficult for the traditional edge detection methods to differentiate the edges of the particles from cement microstructural images. In this paper, a method detecting edges for cement image based on interactive genetic algorithm (IGA) is proposed. The IGA utilizes human knowledge to evaluate the quality of evolved convolution templates to yield a better detector. Experimental results show that the method can accurately detect the edge for cement images.
