Non-destructive Testing Using Thermographic Image Processing
Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
In certain industries, quality testing is crucial, to make sure that the components being manufactured do not contain any defects. One method to detect these defects is to heat the specimen being inspected and then to study the cooling process using infrared thermography. The explorations of non-destructive testing using thermography is at an early stage and therefore the purpose of this thesis is to analyse some of the existing techniques and to propose improvements.
A test specimen containing several different defects was designed specifically for this thesis. A flash lamp was used to heat the specimen and a high-speed infrared camera was used to study both the spatial and temporal features of the cooling process. An algorithm was implemented to detect anomalies and different parameter settings were evaluated. The results show that the proposed method is successful at finding the searched for defects, and also outperforms one of the old methods.
