The paper presents verification of the multifractal analysis proposed in papers [1, 2]. It has been found that such analysis of simulated profiles formed by removing overlaps and secondary cracks from a real profile (which corresponds to a file obtained from a profilographometer), ensures a proper diversity of fractal characterization, adequately to the degree of fracture surface development of the investigated sintered carbide grades measured using a Taylor-Hobson’s Talysurf 2 profilographometer.
