Infrared thermography and NDT : 2050 horizon

Authors: Khodayar, FaribaSojasi, SaeedMaldague, X.
Abstract: Society is changing fast, new technologies and materials have been developed which require new inspection approaches. Infrared thermography (IRT) has emerged in the recent years as an attractive and reliable technique to address complex non-destructive testing (NDT) problems. Companies are now providing turn-key IRT-NDT systems, but the question we ask now is ‘What is next?’. Even though the future is elusive, we can consider the possible future developments in IR NDT. Our analysis shows that new developments will take place in various areas such as: acquisition, stimulation, processing and obviously an always enlarging range of applications with new materials which will have particular inspection requirements. This paper presents the various developments in the field of IRT which have evolved to lead to the current situation, and then examines the potential future trend in IRT-NDT.
