MiTE stress analysis detector

MiTE is a thermoelastic stress analysis capability that exploits recent advances in low-cost microbolometer detector technology to create a highly affordable, rugged, compact and portable means of imaging stress in dynamically loaded structures.

The MiTE application is available as freeware to registered users.

See the MiTE flyer for information about hardware requirements and potential applications.

See the MiTE Installation & User Guide for instructions on how to install and use the software.

Detailed technical information is available in the article Thermoelastic stress analysis with a compact low-cost microbolometer system, by Nik Rajic and David Rowlands.

Information on the comparative performance of different cameras is available in the article: A performance comparison between cooled and uncooled infrared detectors for thermoelastic stress analysis by Nik Rajic and Neil Street.

Update: 2015 version of MiTE now available for download.
