Abstract
Thermal Wave Detection and Ranging (TWDAR) for non-destructive testing (TNDT) is a whole field, non-contact and non-destructive inspection method to reveal the surface or subsurface anomalies in the test sample, by recording the temperature distribution over it, for a given incident thermal excitation. Present work proposes recent trends in nonstationary thermal imaging methods which can be performed with less peak power heat sources than the widely used conventional pulsed thermographic methods (PT and PPT) and in very less time compared to sinusoidal modulated Lockin Thermography (LT). Furthermore, results obtained with various non-stationary thermal imaging techniques are compared with the phase based conventional thermographic techniques.
