Paper Title:
Analysis of Stress in Aircraft Components Using Lock-In Thermography
  Abstract

This paper describes a theoretical and experimental analysis on full-filed stress distribution from thermoelastic measurements and its application to determination of stress concentration. The sum of the principle stress can be measured by Thermal Stress Analysis (TSA). Lock-in Thermography is very effective tool to measure the structure stress distribution by its high thermal resolving. In this study, the thermoelastic effect theory is described and the relationship between the temperature and the applied stress is developed in an elastic material. Experiments were carried out with 2A12 aluminium alloys plate and ones with hole structure under cyclic load. The thermoelastic effect coefficient is obtained for 2A12 aluminium alloys materials, and the effect law is analyzed that the stress value measured was affected by load frequencies. The optional load frequency is obtained, and that is, the load frequency is selected greater than 3.5Hz for 2Al12 materilas, and it was found that the structure stress can be evaluated with good accuracies by the lock in thermography. The experiment was carried out for aircraft components stress distribution measurement and structure stress analysis. The experimental results show the stress concentration position is easy found from stress distribution by lock-in thermography.
