Goal of this work is the characterization of flaws in cylindrical geometry exploiting Pulse Phase Thermography (PPT), a Non-Destructive Testing method belonging to the Infrared Thermography category. The experiments are conducted on a hollow semicylindrical Plexiglas pipe section, with an outer and an inner diameter, respectively, of 150 mm and 130 mm. Defects are simulated by 5 cylindrical dummy holes, whose diameter range between 2 and 8 mm. Two operations are necessary to reconstruct the actual conditions of the analyzed specimen: morphological operations are carried on to reconstruct its actual surface, due to the distortion of the acquired image; furthermore, an evaluation how the directional emissivity affects the measurements is conducted. A FEM model has also been implemented to extend the analysis on other type of defects.

Abstract

Goal of this work is the characterization of flaws in cylindrical geometry exploiting Pulse Phase Thermography (PPT), a Non-Destructive Testing method belonging to the Infrared Thermography category. The experiments are conducted on a hollow semicylindrical Plexiglas pipe section, with an outer and an inner diameter, respectively, of 150 mm and 130 mm. Defects are simulated by 5 cylindrical dummy holes, whose diameter range between 2 and 8 mm. Two operations are necessary to reconstruct the actual conditions of the analyzed specimen: morphological operations are carried on to reconstruct its actual surface, due to the distortion of the acquired image; furthermore, an evaluation how the directional emissivity affects the measurements is conducted. A FEM model has also been implemented to extend the analysis on other type of defects.
