An Optimal Procedure for Determining the Height Parameters of Fracture Surfaces

T. Ficker


This paper presents an attempt to find an optimal procedure for determining the height parameters of fracture surfaces. This is a useful task that may significantly increase the reliability of topographic analyses of solids. The paper focuses on seeking an optimum number of measuring sites to ensure sufficient reliability of the resulting height parameters determined by the confocal technique. The statistical tests show that the number may be close to 25 measuring sites.
