Abstract

The system contains two measuring techniques based on termovision and thermocouples. Using two techniques simultaneously enables the distribution of the temperature on the surface of the specimen, as well as inside of the structure, to be determined. The internal temperature distribution in a component subjected to fatigue loads indicates its state. Because of this, the temperature distribution can be used to predict the state of a component under various conditions. The influence of the ambient temperature field, as well as that due to wearing or other effects, can be introduced in the analysis. This allows the level and frequency of maintenance required by the component to be determine, as well as its normal operating conditions. The results of research allow characterising the structura
