Paper Abstract

Thermites are solid chemical heat sources that react exothermically by the following equa-tion: Metall + Metal2 Oxide -* Metall Oxide + Metal2 + Heat. This thermite reaction produces a high calorific output that can be used when a concentrated heat source is required. Dynamic evaluation of the thermal profiles generated during thermite reactions requires infrared thermography. The results of this analysis and the technique involved will be discussed.
