Paper Abstract

This paper covers the development and comparison of two systems to measure the temperature variation on rotating components. Measurement of hot spots on a rotating brake disk is used for demonstration purposes. The two systems utilized are a high-speed infrared camera and an array of fiber optics connected to multiple high-speed single-point two-color infrared detectors coupled to a high-speed data acquisition system. The advantages and disadvantages of the two systems are discussed relative to real time data and post processing analyses. Results from both systems are presented for comparison.
