Abstract Strong and lightweight fibre reinforced polymeric composites now dominate the aerospace, marine and low-volume automotive sectors. The surface finish on exterior composite panels is of critical importance for customer satisfaction. This paper describes the application of wavelet texture analysis (WTA) to the task of automatically classifying the surface finish of Carbon Fibre Reinforced Plastic (CFRP) samples into two quality grades. Automatic classification was successful for all but four samples out of 14,400 classification trial configurations, representing 403,200 sample classification attempts (28 attempts per configuration). This work establishes the principle of WTA as a basis for automatic surface finish classification of composite materials.
