Paper Abstract

Infrared thermography has been shown to be very effective in revealing damage in glass fiber composite boat hull structure for both solid laminate and foam core construction hulls. This paper addresses some of the parameters which can impact the effectiveness of the infrared thermal approach for these applications. Effects associated with surface condition, viewing angle, field-of-view, heat source type and intensity, and other conditions are discussed. An approach to providing a simple demonstration of the particular test approach is also discussed.
