Thermoelastic stress analysis (TSA) is often regarded as a laboratory based technique due to its requirement for a cyclic load. A modified methodology is proposed in which only a single transient load is used for the TSA measurement. Two methods of imparting the transient load are validated against calculations and the conventional TSA approach. Specimens with different damage severities are tested and it is shown that the modified TSA method has the potential to be applied in the field as a non-destructive evaluation tool
