Computer assisted defect modelling

A unique computer assisted defect extraction and modelling software tool has been developed to enable inspectors to match a non-destructive testing image with its corresponding 3D CAD model, and defects identified by inspectors to be extracted in 3D and modelled by automatic geometric fitting based on B-splines. The software enables the original CAD model to be modified and exported by including defects, thereby facilitating more accurate defect characterisation and reporting. Several measurement functionalities are included in the software tool for quantitative defect characterisation, such as defect centre position, boundary length, surface area, defect orientation, and distance between two defects.
