Intensity simulated cracks were widely used to verify the performance of the image-based crack inspection algorithm. Intensity simulated crack is defined to the crack to only simulate the intensity of cracks using color and printed papers. The similarity between actual crack and intensity simulated crack was not fully verified yet. In this study, the differences between the actual cracks and intensity simulated cracks were analyzed by focusing on the intensity. Two types of crack to simulate the intensity and geometry were theoretically analyzed using a reflection model, and prepared for the experiment. According to the different angle of the camera and light, the images of the crack specimen were captured. Using that images, the effect of the shooting condition on the view of the intensity were analyzed. The intensity profile image of the shape simulated crack was affected by the angle change of the camera and the light, but in case of the intensity simulated crack the angle of the light did not have a notable effect.
