Analysis of Infrared Thermography during Tensile Test of GFRP
Property of GFRP is naturally dependent on the property of matrix, but receives of temperature effects by external force. Therefore, determination of mechanical property by effect of temperature in GFRP is most crucial factor. In this paper, temperature distribution during crack propagation from temperature change under tensile test was proposed through IR thermography camera. Lock-in thermography method, which is one of technique in IR thermography camera to measure minute change in temperature, was utilized to monitor temperature distribution and change during crack propagation. Method to analyze temperature distribution during crack propagation under tensile test of GFRP via IR thermography camera was suggested. Anisotropy in fiber orientation showed longer fracture time and lower maximum temperature.
