Application of Infrared Thermography in Building Energy Efficiency
MetadataShow full item record
Based on experience, the paper introduces the key issues during the use of infrared thermography in building energy efficiency. In order to get a more useful thermal infrared spectrum, we must correct the operating apparatus and measure more environmental parameters. This includes selecting the temperature range, setting emissivity values, setting the number of averaged frames, selecting auto or manual focus adjustment and temperature tracking, recording thermographic image and measuring position of equipment, visible light photo, temperature of appointment, outdoor temperature, outdoor air speed, and the angle of gradient.
