Abstract

Fractal geometry has gained attention in recent years and represents a problem of high interest for the characterization of surface topography. In this study it was analyzed the surface micro-topography for a rolled thick sheet anisotropic metallic material of type 2000 series aluminium alloy (AA2024-T351). In order to analyze and to characterize the corresponding anisotropic surfaces, profile of particular samples were recorded with a specialized apparatus Mitutoyo SJ-301 (Japan). The random nature of the roughness height is described through statistical analysis. The irregularity of the surface profile has been measured using a lot of conventional surface roughness parameters such as: arithmetic average, mean square root, maximum height of the profile, etc. Fractal analysis provides a useful way to characterize the observed spatial complexity of surface micro-topography. For this study it was used the structural function method to calculate two specific fractal parameters: D (fractal dimension) and L (topothesy). The fractal dimension of all samples it's been be calculated by plotting curves on log-log axes. © Published under licence by IOP Publishing Ltd.
