Paper Abstract

Thermographic imaging is increasingly being utilized for inspection and characterization of materials and structures. Thermal diffusivity imaging provides a means for quantitative characterization of a materials which is independent of apparatus and measurement configuration. This enables more precise imaging of variations in the material or structure needed to track changes resulting from fatigue or aging processes.
