Does anyone know a suitable algorithm to deal with such a complicated problem?

I intend to find cracks in the image. However, as you can see, the noise is very heavy. So, does anybody know how to cope with such a extreme situation? Thanks in advance.

I wonder if a hough circle function could be modified to allow for variations of arc during the line.

I have the same question as yours. Suppose it can, then how to reduce the effect caused by such heavy noise?

The crack is not a perfect line but it does have some sections that are less noisy. I would think you would have to start with a Gaussian blur function. Then the hough functions start by measuring local line angles and then tries to stitch them together into a longer line. The noisy bits won't pass this second part of the process.

This image is color, so the other method is try to convert the other color space and find the easy inspection image. My suggestion try:

boxfilter(src,temp1,kernel......)  //try bigger core. or you can use frequency filter 


   boxfilter(src,temp12,kernel1......)   // the kernel size kernel1<kernel2
   boxfilter(src,temp11,kernel2......)  //try bigger core. or you can use frequency filter 

then try to

threshold (temp2,temp3......)  //or the orher threshold

finally try to use blob to find the longest line or characteristic which is near horizontal.

best regard

It doesn't work well. Not much noise can be removed.

the kernek size should be >11 you can change the other filter and try again and may be you must use area of blob to filter some noise.
