Abstract

Automatic inspection of composite materials is an important task, due to their increasing diffusion in several application fields.

One of the most interesting approaches consists in sensing the energy coming from the heated material, by means of an IR TV camera, and real time image processing of the acquired images (thermography). For a particular class of materials, characterized by regular internal structure (‘honeycomb’ composites), an image processing analysis based on a morphological approach is promising. This is evidentiated in this work, by proposing some techniques which profit by morphological operations, and by showing some results.
