Research on Carboform Nondestructive Examination Based on Infrared Thermal Wave
Due to special characteristics of Carboform material, there are many difficulties to exam such material with traditional methods. Infrared thermal imaging technology shoots carboform to obtain infrared thermal images. With variation of time and temperature, the change principle of thermal performance difference of carboform in different temperature can be compared and analyzed. Effective data and reasonable fitting time can be extracted to fit for data with power exponential function. Then, imaging functions were utilized to perform gray change, median filter, fuzzy contrast enhancement, edge detection so as to output images on fitted data. Defects of specimen can be found. Example of some carboform sample based on infrared thermal wave verified feasibility of the proposed method.
