Experimental results on the thermal nondestructive testing (NDT) of corrosion simulators in 6- and 10-mm-thick steel products are presented. The need for the processing of infrared thermal images via a Fourier transform and principal component analysis (PCA) is demonstrated. The ultimate capabilities of the thermal method are estimated at a level of 20% material loss.
