Numerical modeling of Pulse Thermography experiments using Finite Elements for purposes of defect characterization
Ph.D.
Mirela Susa
Xavier Maldague (Supervisor)
Problem: Pulse Thermography is one of the well established active thermography techniques used in Non-Destructive Testing and Evaluation (NDT&E) of materials and structures. Whereas its use for qualitative defect detection has largely been improved with technical improvements of IR imaging systems, qualitative analysis resulting in defect characterization is still a wide area of research.
Approach: The main purpose of this study concerns the possibilities of application of the Finite Elements Method (FEM) as a tool for numerical simulation of tested object thermal behavior and using these results for defect characterization purposes. Of special interest is the different defect type discrimination as well as the characterization of defects in complex composite structures.
