Abstract: Active infrared thermography refers to the group of methods employed to inspect the integrity of materials or systems through the use of an external energy source and an infrared detector. The external stimulus can be of many forms such as warm or cold air, heat pulses, periodic thermal waves, or mechanical oscillations, e.g. ultrasounds. The way data is captured and processed, as well as the typical applications differ according to the excitation source. This chapter presents a review of three of the most common active techniques in the field of thermography: lock-in thermography, pulsed thermography and vibrothermography.
