Infrared thermography applied to the analysis of material behavior: a brief overview The characterization of material behavior under various loading conditions involves two closely related aspects, namely mechanical and thermal, that can be grouped into one general thermomechanical framework. The goal of this paper is to briefly review specific applications of infrared techniques, over a range of loading conditions, such as quasi-static and polycyclic, for various types of material. Some
