The Application of Image Analysis to Determine Strain Distribution in Leather

Measurement, computer vision, image processing


An image analysis system has been developed to investigate the deformation behaviour of leather in a uni axial direction. This technique provides more information about the stress-strain behaviour of a leather sample along the gauge length as compared to conventional testing, as strain distribution in leather varies from point to point along its surface. This technique could be very helpful in determining strain distribution along the whole hide in a non-destructive way.
