    Abstract

    In this paper, firstly we introduce an automatic welding defect inspection system for X-ray image
    evaluation, then, a novel image segmentation approach is proposed. In this approach, we first apply
    an adaptive morphological filter (AMF) with an appropriate structuring element to remove noise and
    most of the background image which is useless for defect identification. Secondly, edges were derived
    from edge detection by using the Sobel operator. Morphological processing is used to make the edge
    continuum and calculate the defect area. The defects segmentation method is also compared with
    other methods. The performance of experimental results based on the proposed approach is
    evaluated and has been found to be appropriate for automatic radiography Non-Destructive Evaluation
    (NDE).
