Thermal imaging test in Bordeaux

University of Bordeaxu has carried out their first test in situ. An exterior wall of building in Bordeaux was diagnosed. The wall has been instrumented with heat flux and temperature sensors and heated by infrared lamps.

The thermal scene was observed by infrared camera. Results are promising. The thermal conductivity and heat capacity of each layer of the wall are estimated by inverse method through measuring the surface temperatures and heat fluxes of the wall. The mean relative error of measured values and reference values was 11.25%.
