The R parameters do not give any information about surface irregularity shapes or spacing. . For that we can use SKEWNESS and KURTOSIS which are statistics functions. Gaussian distribution negative skewness positive skewness Skewness: DESIGN: ok as a Bearing Surface negative positive Negative Skewness: A concentration of the material near the top of the profile signifying a plateau like surface 6 . Skewness of data. ISO 4287. measure of asymmetry of data. Skewness is described by: Sk = 1 Rq3 ∫ ∞ −∞ y 3 p(y)dy Sk = 0. page 23.

Standards organizations have set up a number of preferred traversing lengths.stylus Some details about surface roughness measurements: λc . an adequate number of peaks & valleys is included in the data.5 times the peak-topeak spacing of the profile roughness. This means that at least two peaks and valleys are found in each cut-off length.030 inches) is the most commonly used cut-off length for engineered surfaces 9 . λc = 0.8mm (0. as shown. The cut-off length should be at least 2. If a profile is assessed over a length equal to 6 times the cutoff length. the filter cut-off length is used to differentiate between the roughness and waviness.

Master CD with sinusoidal profiles Advances in Metrology have occurred with the evolution of Manufacturing Technology in: new production techniques and new measurement techniques. therefore the properties of the solid are strongly influenced by the properties of the near surface.Metrology is now significance to the Electronics. techniques Size matters: In Nanotechnology. the overall dimensions of an object decrease dramatically and the importance of the surface relative to that of the volume increases.
