Paper Abstract

A hand held, low resolution, infrared imaging system was used to evaluate the effects of solar gain on a typical, air conditioned, office building. Areas that were addressed focused on the impact of the sun and the early morning temperature changes in the eastern section of a building. Isolating pockets of moisture in a concrete block wall and the probable cause were determined during this survey. Evaluating wet insulation in a built-up roof are described. The implementation of this technology with respect to roof maintenance is discussed.
