In the field of nondestructive testing of structural components, active thermography methods are increasingly in demand. The most experience is available in testing of carbon-fiber-reinforced plastic (CFRP) or similar types of composite material. One of the emerging techniques is ultrasound excited thermography, which has not been fully transferred to massive steel members used in constructional steelwork thus far. The idea of ultrasound excitation is to generate elastic waves that propagate… CONTINUE READING
