Abstract


In this study high resolution thermography is used for identification of damaged zones in Carbon fiber/polyphenylene sulfide (C/PPS) long fiber composite specimens with induced impact damage subjected to tensile fatigue loading. Image processing techniques were applied on thermographs from all loading cases to obtain segmented images of the damaged location that were then used for calculation of the heated area. Results show that the considered method can be used to identify heated area in the vicinity of damage with high confidence at low number of cycles where no significant fatigue effect is present in the material.
