Analysis of Engineering Surfaces

Volume 6, Issue 2
Spring 1996
Louis G. Hector, Jr., Kenneth B. Lippert, and Joseph M. Fridy, Alcoa Technical Center

This micro-geometry of surfaces is critical to the success of most manufacturing processes and the performance of manufactured products. Surfaces, such as those on mill rolls, engine components, dies, and metal sheet, must be measured and analyzed to ensure the consistent manufacture of high-quality products. We present a Mathematica package for analysis of both single-trace (two-dimensional) signatures and (three-dimensional) topographies of engineering surfaces.
