Dynamic line scan thermography optimisation using response surfaces implemented on PVC flat bottom hole plates

Journal Contribution - e-publication

Nowadays, performing dynamic line scan thermography (DLST) is very challenging, and therefore an expert is needed in order to predict the optimal set-up parameters. The parameters are mostly dependent on the material properties of the object to be inspected, but there are also correlations between the parameters themselves. The interrelationship is not always evident even for someone skilled in the art. Therefore, optimisation using response surface can give more insights in the interconnections between parameters, but also between the material properties and the variables. Performing inspections using an optimised parameter set will result in high contrast thermograms showing the size and shape of the defect accurately. Using response surfaces to predict the optimal parameter set enables to perform fast measurements without the need of extensive testing to find adequate measurement parameters. Differing from the optimal parameters will result in contrast loss or detail loss of the size and shape of the detected defect.
