Paper Abstract

Recent advances in infrared thermal imaging technology have brought about a number of new thermal techniques that provide quantitative and qualitative information in the area of vehicle safety. The purpose of this paper is to provide background and fundamental information of vehicle fire propagation and surface temperature as seen from an infrared thermal imaging system. The development of high-resolution, fast-image processing has aided in the attractiveness of thermography as a Research and Development tool.
