The biannual Quantitative Infrared Thermography Conference (QIRT)
is a meeting of
the scientific and industrial community interested and actively working in research, application and
technology related to infrared thermography.
All Conference topics are intended to quantitative results comprising temperature values as well as further parameters on the tested materials and structures. The latter ones are usually obtained through active thermography, e. g. by exploiting non-stationary heat transfer processes activated by additional heat sources or by considering wavelength dependent effects.
Passive and active thermography methods and technologies are spread now along a multitude of areas of applications, which all profit from each other.
- State-of-the-art and evolution in the field of infrared scanners and imaging systems allowing quantitative measurements, and related data acquisition and processing systems.
- Calibration and characterization of infrared cameras and related topics like certification, standardization, validation, emissivity determination, absorption in media, translucent media, spurious radiations, three dimensionality of observed objects.
- Characterization of optical and further heat sources for active thermography.
- Analytical and numerical modeling, data reduction and image processing related to infrared thermography.
- Application of infrared thermography to radiometry, thermometry, and physical parameters identification and quantification, in all fields: fluid mechanics, solid mechanics, structures and material sciences, nondestructive evaluations, electromagnetism, medicine and biomedical sciences, remote sensing, environment monitoring, industrial processes and other.
