Paper Abstract

Thermoelastic stress analysis is a relatively new experimental method which shows considerable promise for quantitative NDT of structures such as aging aircrafts. Whereas most previous thermoelastic applications have been qualitative in nature, this paper emphasizes the ability to develop the technique into a practical, non-contacting, quantitative NDT method for analyzing actual engineering structures made of either isotropic or orthotropic materials and while in their operating environment.
