... Abstract For most nondestructive evaluation (NDE) applications, the term thermography actually refers to surface-excited thermography (SET) that involves thermal mapping of surface temperature as heat flows from, to, or through a test object in response to excitation applied to the sample...

... heating ( Ref 1 ). In the vibrothermography process, a specimen is vibrated at high amplitude with a transducer or exciter, making contacting surfaces, such as crack and delamination faces, clap and rub. Clapping and rubbing generates heat, which conducts to the specimen surface and is imaged using...
