The work described in this paper offers the possibility of using a polymer coating as a strain witness in thermoelasticity. In particular, the efficacy of a polymer coating for making thermoelastic measurements is investigated by experiment and the supporting theory is presented. It was found that the thermoelastic response is greatest with thick coatings at high frequencies. However, thicknesses of more than 0.5 mm and frequencies greater than 5 Hz provide adequate results.
