We will describe fast infrared imaging of both static and dynamic crush tests on glass-fiber composite tubes. The results are compared with simultaneous high-speed video images of the same tests, and with microscopy following the tests.—This work is supported in part by the Institute for Manufacturing Research, Wayne State University. © 2000 American Institute of Physics.
