In this paper, the problem of automatic classification of rust grades
on steel surfaces is considered. Three texture analysis methods are studied to
form features from steel surfaces. Nearest Neighbor classifier is used for
classification of steel surface types. The results indicate that automation of the
inspection and classification process is feasible.
