Does ProfilmOnline calculate functional surface parameters?

For my master thesis I have been trying to acquire functional parameters such as Sk, Svk, Smr1 or Smr2, extracted from the bearing curve. Unfortunately, I have not been able to find these, though they hold great importance for this curve. Is there any feature in the software to find these parameters or an indirect way to do it?

I tried exporting the curve data and calculate it myself but the format of the data made it impossible. I would appreciate any help or suggestions.

Thank you.

Computation of these parameters is included in an update that is scheduled for release in early August.

This week’s site update added the capability to compute these parameters. To activate them, select Surface Roughness analysis and click the settings gear to access the Area Roughness settings dialog. Screenshot of the new parameters is shown below.
