In this paper, the possibility of implementation of the infrared thermography as a technical systems’ diagnostic method is investigated. The infrared thermography as a contemporary method was used for visualization of the working conditions in the piston of an automotive engine as well as for analyzing of the thermal changes the piston sustained under exploitation. The obtained results were used to define the properties of the alloy used for production of the piston for a highly loaded diesel engine. In such way, the problems caused by erroneous choice of the material could be avoided.
