Title: SUPPORT STRUCTURE DETECTION
Abstract:
While the typically-collected diameter data contains information for detecting some garter springs, many garter springs may not be detected without processing the diameter data. Responsively, a method for processing the diameter data to detect the garter springs has been developed. In particular, the processing involves fitting of the diameter data to a shape, determining residual errors and using the residual errors to locate garter springs.
