Entropy-based inhomogeneity detection in porous media Academic Article uri icon


  • We study a change-point problem for random fields based on a univariate detection of outliers via the $3sigma$-rule in order to recognize inhomogeneities in porous media. In particular, we focus on fibre reinforced polymers modeled by stochastic fibre processes with high fibre intensity and search for abrupt changes in the direction of the fibres. As a measure of change, the entropy of the directional distribution is locally estimated within a window that scans the region to be analyzed.
