A short review of recent achievements in both theory and practice of transient infrared thermographic nondestructive evaluation in the application to corrosion detection is given. The potentials of 1D, 2D and 3D approaches to solving a heat conduction problem related to detecting material loss are compared, as well as the requirements to the inspection equipment are formulated. The practical illustrations are taken from the inspection of thin aluminum structures and thick steel samples.
