The history of thermal testing can be traced back to the first patents in infrared engineering related to remote detection of heated bodies. Active thermal methods are based on thermal loading of the object and recording of its thermal response in time. Thermal testing implies the solution of direct and inverse heat transfer problems, in which the change of thermal properties and the presence of internal defects distort the standard thermal pattern of the object being tested.
