Abstract

The development of new approaches in image processing and retrieval provides several opportunities in supporting in different domains. The group of welding engineers frequently needs to conduct visual inspections to assess the quality of welding products. It is investigated, if this process can be supported by different kinds of software. Techniques from a generic CBIR system have been successfully used to cluster welding photographs according to the severeness of visual faults. Similarity algorithms were used to automatically spot faults, such as cracks and gas pores
