This work represents an overview of some of the applications of infrared thermography that have been carried out at the University of Naples Federico II over the years. The focus is on four topics: thermo-fluid-dynamics, materials inspection, cultural heritage and preventative maintenance. For each topic, some results are presented as thermal, and/or phase, images with the attention being essentially devoted to the capacity of these images to communicate information. For more details on test apparatuses, procedures and data analyses, the reader is referred to the previous published work, available in the literature. View Full-Text
Keywords: infrared thermography; thermo-fluid-dynamics; cultural heritage; materials inspection; non-destructive evaluation; load monitoring infrared thermography; thermo-fluid-dynamics; cultural heritage; materials inspection; non-destructive evaluation; load monitoring
