Abstract: In this paper we study the behavior of Rul1 layers deposited by thermal metal spraying to the thermal shock using infrared thermography. It will present thermo grams obtained for the thermal field distribution during heating and the resulting defects. In particular it aims to interfaces defects such as lack of adherence.

Abstract: The emergence recently of a thermoelastic stress analysis (TSA) capability exploiting low-cost, compact and rugged microbolometer detector technology provides a significant opportunity topromote a broader use of this powerful non-contact full-field stress analysis technique. An area whereit has considerable and hitherto unexplored potential is in in-situ structural health monitoring (SHM).The present paper outlines the case for a nexus between SHMand TSA in this new form. It is proposedthat the approach should yield diagnostic and prognostic capabilities surpassing those of some existingSHM modalities. An F/A-18 centre-fuselage full-scale structural fatigue test is employed as a casestudy to illustrate the practical feasibility of the approach and to underscore some of its potential.Although the case study focuses on an aircraft structure, the concept has potential application to awide variety of different engineering assets across the aerospace, civil and maritime sectors.

Abstract: Damage evolution due to generation of hot spots on railway brake disc was investigated using the infrared thermography method. A brake disc with gray cast iron, which is currently used in Korea, was employed for this investigation. A high-speed infrared camera was used to measure the surface temperature of brake disc as well as for in-situ monitoring of hot spot evolution. From the thermographic images, the observed hot spots and thermal damage of railway brake disc during braking operation were qualitatively analyzed. Moreover, in this investigation, the previous experimental and theoretical studies on hot spots phenomenon were reviewed, and the current experimental results were introduced and compared with theoretical prediction.

Abstract: This paper presents sample applications of passive infrared thermography for research on temperature changes of mini-specimens resulting from monotonously increasing or cyclically variable mechanical load. The MFS system developed in the Department of Machine Design at the University of Technology and Life Sciences in Bydgoszcz (Poland) and designed for testing mechanical properties of microelements were used for tests. The MFS system ensures nanometric measurement accuracy of many static and fatigue-related material properties, including, i.a., static tension curves, cyclic strain curves, fatigue life curves as a function of force, stress and strain. Measurements of the mini-specimens temperature were performed using thermographic camera equipped with microscope lens. The tests have shown that research on the passive infrared thermography may be successfully applied for determining strength properties of materials in micro scale. The used research instrumentation is characterized by sufficient sensitivity and resolution (camera with the microscope lens), while the MFS system ensures accurate load and position control.

Abstract: This paper provides the results of research on temperature changes of cylindrical specimens depending on the pattern of the multiaxial load. The research were made by using passive infrared thermography. It was found out that the average temperature value is significantly dependent on the plastic strain energy and that the temperature change amplitude depends on the nominal normal stress (except for torsion).

Abstract: In this paper, the heat transfer characters of heat pipe radiator for cooling electronic device with high heat flux were investigated by visualization method. The surface temperature of heat pipe radiator was measured at different heat flux and constant fan speed of 0.7m/s, and the results show that the surface temperature of electronic apparatus is below 75°C for the heat flux 8W/cm2 at constant fan speed of 0.7m/s; The error in measured value using thermocouple and technique of infrared thermography was analyzed based on the principles of temperature measurement of infrared thermal imager.
