Classification of Welding Defects in Radiographic Images Using an Adaptive-Network-Based Fuzzy System
In this paper, we describe an automatic system of radiographic inspection of welding. An important stage in the construction of this system is the classification of defects. In this stage, an adaptive-network-based fuzzy inference system (ANFIS) for weld defect classification was used. The results was compared with the aim to know the features that allow the best classification. The correlation coefficients were determined obtaining a minimum value of 0.84. The accuracy or the proportion of the total number of predictions that were correct was determined obtaining a value of 82.6%.
