Paper Abstract

To adequately examine the subsurface condition of a composite structure, a thermal imaging system (thermography) was comparatively evaluated with existing nondestructive inspection techniques and has proven to be more expeditious and ultimately more cost effective. Thermography is easily adapted to composite manufacturing, particularly in the rubber insulating materials, because of their strong transfer thermographic characteristics. Temperature conditioning is a standard process in the manufacturing of composites, which ensures component homogeneity and structural stability; thus, the desire to alter the temperature of a specimen from room ambient is a standard and uncompromising task.
