Paper Abstract

IR thermography constitutes an especially useful tool for the extraction of 3D information, since it can in a single test setup both identify the overall relief of an object and quantify potential subsurface defects. Heat transfer modeling can take advantage of this 3D calibration of the thermal stimulation apparatus; the associated temperature rise becomes a known measurement for all surface mesh nodes and time-intervals. This path would greatly enhance the validity of heat transfer modeling.
