Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Thermal edge effects for a cracklike defect have been calculated using the Wiener–Hopf technique. These have been used in an analytical model to explain transient thermographic image formation. The analysis has led to a simple method for defect sizing which is demonstrated using experimental results.
