A New Technique for Classifying Random Surface Roughness 670032

Present techniques for classification and analysis of surface roughness are based on a trace of surface profile, or a measure of arithmetic mean, or rms value of the profile height, but this information is not adequate, and a new technique has been developed to classify surface roughness based on frequency content of the variance of the surface profile. A digital computer frequency filter has been devised to allow differentiation between roughness height and waviness or general surface contour. Three representative surfaces have been measured and classified according to this analysis and data are presented in support for roughness classification techniques.
