Paper Abstract

Over the years, constant developments and improvements have been made in the portability of infrared equipment. The ability to move around and travel from job to job easily greatly enhances the effectiveness of most in-field infrared thermographic surveys. Many vehicles have been modified to offer mobile infrared thermographic services. This paper describes one approach, and the results, to mobile infrared thermography. It covers the various stages in adapting a vehicle for mobile infrared thermography (IR) and problems encountered along the way. Originally designed for scanning electrical distribution lines, the "IR Van" also serves as a mobile unit for building diagnostics. The paper addresses building diagnostic applications for mobile IR and some of the findings recorded during an initial community investigation.
