Deep Learning Based Crack Detection From Inhomogeneous X-Ray Images for High Pressure Turbine Blades in Aviation
Timo Kuhlgatz, Sontje Ihler, Marius Bonhage, Thomas Seel

The paper identifies cracks in industrial X-ray images from aviation using deep learning. Compared to previous work, industrial X-ray images are inhomogeneous and show a high level of detail of turbine blades, so that cracks are often not recognizable for laymen. Our team was able to identify damage on inhomogeneous industrial X-ray images for the first time.

We would like to thank the entire team, especially Timo and Sontje, for their dedicated work on this project. Your collaboration and hard work played a crucial role in this success.
