Cracks in aluminum busbar

Maintenance Engineer in my factory, I noticed an error in our busbar.
Some bars in aluminum have several cracks.
How can we know the importance of the phenomenon and its evolution?
Can the thermography help me?


This phenomenon has already been found on aluminum bars manufactured on continuous casting.
Thermography is not sufficient due to the thermal diffusion within the aluminum.
An electrical measurement give the possibility to quantify the problem.

Key words : busbar, aluminum, cracks
