Application of Gradient Based IR Thermography to the GRP Structures Inspection
The article presents application of non destructive testing method based on the pulse heating infrared thermography used to detect material anomalies for the case of glass reinforced polymer structures. The goal of presented research, based on the thermal gradient approach, is to establish the procedure capable of filtering out anomalies from other thermal influences caused by thermal reflections of surrounding objects, geometry influences and heat flows for observed object.
