Abstract
Recent improvements in thermal imaging systems having video recording and digital processing capabilities have resulted in renewed interest in thermography as a viable nondestructive evaluation technique. Examples of the use of real-time thermography for monitoring plastics manufacturing processes and structural integrity of fiber reinforced composites are presented. Newly developed passive thermographic and vibrothermographic techniques for characterization of composite materials are discussed.
