Abstract

Abstract IR thermography is applied for several important purposes in the monitoring of historical buildings; among them, is here presented the monitoring of the wall's hidden structure, the finishing status and the moisture content. Furthermore, an improved technique for the thermal properties measuring porous material is also described. Dedicated thermal models are used to optimise the transient or quasi-stationary testing procedure. Both hardware and software tools are set up to implement updated thermographic equipment in order to fit specific requirements for in situ dynamic tests.
