Paper Abstract

As the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) and the American Concrete Institute (Ad) work toward the adoption of new standards in masonry construction, a new level of quality control inspection is becoming mandatory. Required inspections will focus on evaluating masonry for compliance with the design specifications with regard to material, structural strength and thermal performance. The use of video infrared thermography provides a thorough, systematic mathod of masonry construction inspection. By video taping the survey, potential controversy can be alleviated by reviewing the permanent video taped record.
