Non-contact roundness measurement with air gauges: simulation studies
by Radomir Majchrowski
International Journal of Materials and Product Technology (IJMPT), Vol. 57, No. 4, 2018

Abstract: The article presents the results of simulation-based analysis of non-contact roundness measurement of inner cylindrical surfaces. The method is based on the reference measurement with air gauges. The simulation tests were conducted to evaluate the influence of certain parameters on the final measurement results, including the harmonic analysis (up to 15th harmonics). The investigations were aimed to the assessment of influence of particular measurement errors, like the error of the measuring slot, or the non-orthodox position of the measuring head, on the final result of the roundness measurement. These studies' results are useful not only in this particular application, but generally in the process of designing the non-contact roundness measurement instrument that use air gauges.
