Paper Abstract

The infrared scanning data for nondestructive testing are decomposed into three components; global trend, local contours, and noise. Methods are proposed to determine the trend function resulting from surface curvature and surface emissivity changes. The contour function is shown to possess isotherm features which permit the use of pattern recognition to detect structure defects. Data discrimination methods are also presented to identify data as to its implications. As a demonstration for application, two case studies are presented that include analysis for data without either contour or trend component.
