Abstract

A novel method for detecting adhesive failures in GRID-LOCK(R) structures is proposed using transient thermography. The method is suitable for rapid inspection of large areas. In addition to the development of a novel thermal application system, a head mounted display will be incorporated to enhance ease of use.
