MeTiS : software application for automatic characterization of inclusion population in the metallurgical industry
MeTiS was developed by Datamet to characterize inclusion population automatically from images from an optical microscope or a system consisting of a scanning electron microscope and EDS analyzer.
The benefits of Metis Measure are:
Examples of inclusions detected
Processing software, dissociated measurement software allows multiple operations data measurement files, and return the results in Microsoft Excel.
The main specificities of MeTis are:
The benefits of MeTis Treatment are :
The simulation software provides access to statistical parameters of the various methods by measures calculated on virtual samples.
The advantages of MetiS Simulation are :
An article describing the application is published in the journal JEOL News in July 2006.
Version for optical microscopy
MeTiS version for optical microscopy offers the same features as the version for electron microscopy, with the exception of the following features:
Grain boundary detection
Grain boundary detection example
This software solves a common problem in materials science, namely the detection of grain boundaries. For example, ASTM standards refer to this detection.
The user interface appears as a combination of several windows with buttons calling some functions of image processing and mathematical morphology. The judicious combination of these features can automatically detect the grains and their boundaries in calling functions segmentation and analysis of size and shape. The user has very few parameters to be specified before the launch detection and the output image of the algorithm contains boundaries thinned and thick one pixel.
This software is absolutely expectations metallurgists who wish to automate the detection of grain material and quantify the number of phases and inclusions in steel. The software is based on a stand-alone program that takes an image in TIFF format as input and generates an image at the same output format. All measurements are exported to a file in Microsoft Excel format. The demo version is an executable Visual Basic.
The advantages of the detection software grain boundaries are:
The algorithm includes edge detection, two types of transformations Top Hat Form to solve the problem of non-uniform illumination, an edge detection, filtering, operations erosion and dilation to clean contours, a line algorithm Watershed and skeleton by influence zone.
