Fiber reinforced polymers (FRP) composites are an efficient method in the strengthening of civil structures. FRP systems are usually applied by means of a wet lay-up method. National guidelines recognize that Infrared Thermography (IRT) is a possible non-destructive evaluation (NDE) technique for the detection of bonding defects, voids and damages and the characterization of the surface layers without a direct contact between the device and the observed area. Conversely, in the guidelines no clear indications are given about the inspection procedure.

Abstract

Fiber reinforced polymers (FRP) composites are an efficient method in the strengthening of civil structures. FRP systems are usually applied by means of a wet lay-up method. National guidelines recognize that Infrared Thermography (IRT) is a possible non-destructive evaluation (NDE) technique for the detection of bonding defects, voids and damages and the characterization of the surface layers without a direct contact between the device and the observed area. Conversely, in the guidelines no clear indications are given about the inspection procedure.
