Energy dissipation in metals under irreversible deformation leads to intensive heat generation in strain localization zones. In this work, we focus on measuring heat source power using temperature data obtained by IR thermography. The calculated heat source power data were verified by analyzing the data recorded by the Seebeck effect-based heat flux sensor developed in previous study. Quasi-static tensile tests were conducted on titanium alloy Grade 2 flat specimens. It is shown that the
