Paper Abstract

Using a previously developed and validated modeling approach for FEA-based heat transfer, the impact of the amount of water and its location in a wall or similar structure on the thermal signature of the surface is examined. The results are used to determine whether or under what conditions the IR results can be used to determine the amount of water and its depth in the structure. The amount and location of the water has significant effects on the thermal signature of the wall. This approach can also be used to examine the impact of the depth of a delamination or other subsurface features on the thermal signature with the potential for providing guidance to applying IR for quantification of these features as well.
