Pulse Thermography for Inspecting Automotive Components and Materials 2010-01-0959

The presented manuscript discusses the implementation of the pulsed-thermography technique for the non-intrusive evaluation of automotive parts. The study discusses the fundamentals of static and dynamic thermography through examples and case studies. Furthermore, the proposed pulse thermography system is analyzed in terms of hardware calibration i.e. pulse duration and intensity and the detector effect on the time and the spatial resolutions. Current thermography processing codes and techniques are also described and critiqued, with new processing subroutines proposed; one based on self-referencing thersholding. Additionally, new trends in infrared and visible sensors fusion are presented.
