Paper Abstract

This paper discusses and describes applications of a recently developed infrared scanning system (SPATE) sensitive enough to be used for the full-field experimental stress analysis of dynamically loaded structures. A review is presented of the progress of the thermo-elastic stress analysis research programme at the National Engineering Laboratory over the past four years. Stress analyses performed on several components and engineering structures are described, and developments in such areas as calibration, design evaluation, and random loading are discussed.
