    A variety of data from different devices has been generated on the smoothness of shield products, but no direct comparison of compound smoothness for the devices themselves has been made. The purpose of this study was to compare four different methods for evaluating the smoothness of power cable compounds. The methods compared include: image analysis, laser scanning, mechanical profilometry and ph... View full abstract»

    For original paper see ibid., vol.8, no.5, p.27-33 (1992). The commenter contends that the conclusion reached in the above-titled paper that there is little evidence that conventional tests discriminate conclusively between good and deteriorated unshielded cables is incorrect. He maintains that the author's data can be viewed in such a manner that it will support the opposite conclusion. The autho... View full abstract»
