This AMRE team developed a new image analysis tool for Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company. This project had two main goals. The first was to develop a three-dimensional rendering of particles from a two-dimensional sample image. The second goal was to produce a three-dimensional rendering of cylinders from a two-dimensional image featuring ellipses and non-spherical particles. Several properties of a given rubber sample, such as the rubber's toughening efficiency and impact resistance, are related to particle size, shape, and location. This tool enables Goodyear to analyze two-dimensional images of rubber samples more effectively by providing new insight into the samples' three-dimensional characteristics.
