Roughness (surface roughness)
Roughness (surface roughness) has a complicated shape in which there are continuous peaks and valleys whose heights, depths, and intervals differ. The surface condition wherein uneven surfaces appear in a continuing sequence in relatively short cycles and at relatively shorter intervals then the depth is called the roughness (surface roughness).
