Paper Abstract

Thermography and different variants of holography (holographic interferometry, speckle interferometry, shearography) are full-field non-contact techniques which are used in nondestructive testing applications. In particular they are attractive for damage detection in composite materials compared to other methods measuring in one point and which require scanning and contact with the samples, like ultrasounds. Currently thermography is a step forward compared to holographic techniques for this application. Indeed it is easier to interpret. Many thermography configurations and variants exist, from exciting sources to post-processing. Such a variety exists also among the holographic techniques but to a less extent. We will see how these techniques can share some aspects and what distinguish them. Also the complementarity of both will be addressed and how to combine them. At last we will discuss how processing developed for thermography can benefit to holography and vice-versa, specifically in the domain of composite materials.
