FLIR thermal imaging cameras help -researchers monitor and evaluate -innovative joining techniques

Industries like automobile, aircraft and railway manufacturing are increasingly using new composite materials like carbon. Although these materials hold many benefits for the design and production of these vehicles (high performance and light weight to name a few), they also come with new challenges in terms of manufacturing, inspection and maintenance. At the Laboratory for Materials and Joining Technology (LWF), part of the University of Paderborn in Germany, researchers particularly focus on the development of joining techniques for composite materials. In their search for the most durable and energy-efficient materials, they use the power of thermal imaging cameras from FLIR Systems to test novel joining techniques.

3T uses FLIR camera to detect temperature differences on PCB components

High-performance FLIR T420 camera detects faults in PCBs in an early stage. The design of a Printed Circuit Board (PCB) can be very complex. Dutch embedded electronics specialist 3T sometimes develops PCBs that have over 2,000 different components. But what if something is wrong with one of those components? How can you see tiny faults in PCB components of less than a millimeter that might be the cause for a bigger PCB failure? Very often, thermal imaging will be the answer. 3T has been using thermal imaging cameras for many years throughout its different activities to detect hot spots of less than 125 microns.

BAM ensures safe oxygen cylinder filling with FLIR thermal imaging camera

We all breathe oxygen. Without it life as we know it would not be possible. But oxygen, especially when pressurized, can be extremely dangerous. It is highly reactive and can form chemical bonds with almost all other elements. Pressurized oxygen is used in chemical plants and iron ore smelting, but also in hospitals and for scuba diving. To ensure user safety all equipment and components that come into contact with pressurized oxygen therefore need to be thoroughly tested. This is the task of the Federal Institute for Materials Research and Testing (BAM), Berlin, Germany, working group ‘Safe Handling of Oxygen’.

Thermal imaging camera helps improve hypersonic aerodynamic designs

For the purpose of space exploration and aircraft technologies, researchers have explored travelling at hypersonic speeds, which entails attaining speeds over Mach 5, more than five times the speed of sound. This puts a huge strain on the aerodynamic and thermal designs of vessels and components. To test components and their capability to withstand airflows at such velocities, the University of Manchester in the United Kingdom combines their hypersonic wind tunnel with a thermal imaging camera from FLIR Systems.

Non-contact sociologic research with ­thermal imaging cameras

Researchers that want to study neurovascular elements of human social interaction are often confronted with the limitations of commonly used methods in neuroscience. They often involve the application of electrodes or other contact measurement instruments on the skin of the test subjects, which interferes with spontaneous behavior. Non-contact methods, such as functional magnetic resonance imaging, involve subjecting test subjects to active radiation and require the test subjects to remain still for extended periods of time.

Nordic district heating networks monitored from the sky with thermal imaging

District heating is a system for distributing heat generated in a centralized location for residential and commercial heating. Hot water or steam is distributed to households and companies through an underground network of pipes. District heating can potentially help to reduce a city's carbon footprint by increasing the efficiency of heating systems throughout the entire city. According to some researchers district heating is the cheapest method for a city to cut on carbon emissions.

Thermal imaging camera helps develop new cryogenic fuel tank design

Fuel is a crucial part of space technology, it is necessary to propel the spacecraft but adding more fuel makes the spacecraft heavier and therefore less economic in its propulsion. Spacecraft designers continually face this dilemma. One of the best solutions current technology has to offer is the use of cryogenic fuel, due to its excellent energy to mass ratio.

FLIR thermal imaging camera allows evaluation of laminar designs

Air flowing across an airplane's wings will provide the lift that is essential for flight, but it also causes friction and drag, which slows down the aircraft and causes inefficient propulsion. Laminar air flow along an airplane's wings can theoretically greatly reduce drag, improving the airplane's efficiency.

FLIR thermal imaging cameras help detect material failures in bikes

Modern bike frames are made of carbon fiber-reinforced plastics, which is exceptionally light and strong. But the way these frames behave in case of failure is fundamentally different from the old metal frames. Instead of bending, carbon fiber-reinforced plastics break. This exposes riders to dangerous situations; failures can lead to injury or even death.
