Overview of IR Thermography


Infrared Thermography is the indirect measurement of temperature through the detection of infrared radiation emitted by heated elements. In building investigations, it is essentially the use of very slight thermal anomalies that are not normally perceptible without specialized equipment to detect potential building defects or damage. TSA typically uses infrared thermography as a part of wider building assessment and does not rely on an image alone as proof of a problem. The main benefit of IR thermography is that it often allows a building consultant to focus their investigation on areas that are more likely to have experienced a problem.
