Thermography, also known as thermal inspection or infrared (IR) imaging, is one of the most common nondestructive testing (NDT) methods, and it is becoming more widely used as the technology improves and users begin to realize the true potential of this testing method. Thermography is characterized by the use of thermal and infrared sensors to measure temperature variations in a variety of test objects. This article will provide an overview of thermography, including the history, physical principles, inspection requirements, and advantages and disadvantages of the method. [1, 2]
