Webinar – Profilometry series: Unlocking surface secrets with areal analysis techniques

March 27, 2024

Profile measurements offer insights into surface features along specific lines or paths, however they are often insufficient for capturing the full complexity and variability of surface topography. Areal surface analysis provides a more comprehensive picture of surface roughness and topography, even though some basic areal parameters may still not suffice in the case of some complex surface datasets.

In this webinar, the second in our Profilometry series, François will highlight specific areal surface texture analysis tools that can be key to unlocking the secrets of your surface data.

The webinar is aimed at current users of Mountains® analysis software, anyone trying out the software and, more widely, at anyone analyzing profile or surface data collected using profilometry or microscopy.

What you’ll see in this webinar:

  • Why use areal surface texture analysis as described in ISO 25178?
  • Displaying areal measurements in 3D
  • What makes a surface complex?
  • Why analyzing profiles can be insufficient for complex surface data
  • How to clean up measurements before analysis
  • Enhancing data to improve visualization
  • When Sq and Sa are not enough
  • Analyzing texture direction (isotropy)
  • Leveling complex surfaces
  • Removing form & excluding structures
