Paper Abstract

This paper presents a numerical approach to analyzing thermography data. In this method, referred to as the hybrid technique, measured surface temperature data is used to derive a set of interpolation and extrapolation functions for an entire surface. Although a number of constraint equations can be used in deriving these functions, the heat conduction equation was chosen here in an attempt to retain some physical characteristics of the surface behavior. Surface temperatures obtained from an application of the hybrid method are compared to those obtained in an independent finite element computation.
