C. J. Taylor and R.N. Dixon. Image analysis applied to fibre images. In The role of fundamental research in paper-making, Trans. of the VIIth Fund. Res. Symp. Cambridge, 1981, (Fundamental Research Committee, ed.), pp 777–784, FRC, Manchester, 2018.


In this paper we present a historical review of the development of image analysis hardware and describe the types of equipment which are commercially available today. We also discuss probable future trends in the development of automatic image analysis systems. Against this background the problems specific to analysing images of fibres are described and illustrated by experimental results obtained working with phase contrast microscope images of asbestos fibres.
