The advanced thermal models that can be used in the detection of buried landmines and the thermographic nondestructive testing (TNDT) of composites were discussed. The interdependence between surface temperature signals and various complex parameters, such as surface and volumetric moisture, the shape of heat pulse, material anisotropy, etc. was demostrated. Thermal modeling aids greatly in the understanding of the TNDT process, as it predicts the effect of both testing parameters and structural variables.
