This paper deals with the solution of an inverse heat conduction problem, aiming at the identification of contact failures in composites formed by layers of different materials. The inverse problem is solved within the Bayesian framework, with a Markov chain Monte Carlo method. The effects of the prior models, for the unknown contact conductance at the interface of a plate with two layers, are examined. The solution of the inverse problem is performed with simulated temperature measurements.
