Description

Infrared Thermography in the Evaluation of Aerospace Composite Materials: Infrared Thermography to Composites provides an update on infrared thermography, a fast and reliable method for non-destructive evaluation of composite materials used in the aerospace field. The book describes composites and the main problems that can arise both during manufacturing and when in service, and then covers different thermographic non-destructive testing and evaluation techniques, including pulse thermography, lock-in thermography, and pulse phase.

Each technique includes key examples and relevant references, with sections devoted to the usefulness of an infrared imaging device to monitor the behavior of a material under load, such as impact and bending. The book also includes discussions on standards, personnel certification, and training.

Key Features

  • Provides a comprehensive look at the use of infrared thermography in the materials science field
  • Describes thermographic techniques of non-destructive testing in an easy way, and with links to aeronautical standards
  • Addresses different types of composite problems and how they can be helped through the use of infrared thermography
  • Includes key examples and relevant references, with sections devoted to the usefulness of an infrared imaging device to monitor the behavior of a material under load

Readership

Researchers and technicians in academia and industry involved with the use of infrared thermography for nondestructive evaluation of materials and structures
