Paper Abstract

Thermography is one of many techniques used for nondestructive testing for which both passive and active approach could be taken. The passive approach is effective for materials and structures which are naturally at a different temperature than the environment. The active approach requires an external heating source to stimulate the materials or structures to be tested. These methods can be also applied to detect mines hidden in the ground. Passive approach is used when natural heating of soil by sun radiation is exploited. In the case of active approach it is used an external heating source for example a microwave source to provide thermal stimulation. In this paper the results of our experiments with both methods carried out in the laboratory set-up and in the outdoor measuring field are presented.
