Defectoscopic and Clinical Applications of Infrared Technique

The article deals with possible visualization of inhomogeneities in inorganic materials, such as laminates, as well as organic materials, such as bones. This work also provides a study of the visualization of internal fixation (nail), introduced in a bone by the IR technique. In the theoretical part, we present thermal wave propagation and a theoretical approach to the possibility of visualization of the boundary between two different materials with different thermal conductivity. Further on, the experimental method is tested with success on discovering artificial defects in glass laminates. In the second part of the article, a successful method of the visualization of the internal fixator position in a bone under IR excitation is presented. Methods of processing the data measured with the use of an infrared camera are presented in detail.
