Abstract

Reference software for the evaluation of areal surface texture parameters is described, focussing on the definitions of the parameters and giving details of the numerical algorithms employed in the software to implement those definitions. The reference software is used as a benchmark against which software in a measuring instrument can be compared. A data set is used as input to both the software under test and the reference software, and the results delivered by the software under test are compared with those provided by the reference software. The most important consideration in the design and development of reference software is its numerical correctness. This is in contrast to considerations for production software, for which the requirements on numerical correctness are generally more modest, but issues of eciency, such as computing time and memory, and usability are of concern.
