With the rapid development of infrared imaging technology in last decades,the application range of the nondestructive examination,including fatigue testing,is continuously wider. By reviewing the studies and utilizations of temperature evolution during metal undergoing cyclic loading,this paper provides a reference and also guidance for further research. According to the articles on fatigue temperature evolution,the present overview summarized general rule and characteristics of fatigue temperature evolution. The cause of this temperature evolution is specifically analyzed. Some fatigue life prediction methodologies based on the temperature evolution are systematically reviewed. Finally,a prospect of this research direction is given.
Key words:    temperature evolution    infrared imaging    fatigue testing    nondestructive examination
