Paper Abstract

Installing insulation in the core of masonry construction has become acceptable in the construction industry. A method of inspecting the walls is needed that can be performed before the building is completed. This paper is an infrared study of masonry construction relying on thermal changes created by environmental temperature patterns and sun loading on the structure. A temperature verses time study is conducted to determine the most advantageous time frame in which the study should be conducted.
