This tutorial text will familiarize the reader with the operating principles and practical performance characteristics of commercial infrared (IR) thermal sensing and imaging instruments, and will guide the reader in their selection and application.
The early chapters (Part I) include a brief review of the principles of heat flow, a review of the basic principles of IR radiometry and thermography, and a discussion of how these principles are reflected in instrument design and performance. Later chapters (Part II) illustrate how these performance parameters are utilized to solve a wide variety of applications problems.
