Abstract
The determination of types and size distributions of inclusions in steel samples from Optical Emission Spectrometry with Pulse Discrimination Analysis (OES/PDA) data requires advanced mathematical tools. The main task is to filter out those OES/PDA events that correspond to inclusions in contrast to volume events, i.e. to find reliably the outliers in the data sets. The distribution functions of intensities and even more of the masses are nonnormal. Thus the data are fitted to nonnormal distributions and the outliers are determined as events not belonging to these distributions. After determining the outliers this information is used to find clusters of data points corresponding to distinct inclusion types. For this purpose a particular kind of neural network called Self Organizing Map (SOM) proved to be well suited. With the information about outliers and inclusions types, mass distributions and further size distributions of the different inclusion types can be calculated.
