Paper Abstract

The overall objective of this paper is to improve the understanding of thermodynamic mechanisms around buried objects. The purpose is to utilize most favourable conditions for detection and also to enhance and evaluate other detection methods shown in a companion paper. This paper focuses on physical based models and simulations with measured data as boundaries for different situations of buried objects. For numerical models some assumptions of the real environment and boundaries have to be made, this paper shows the effects of different approaches of these assumptions. The investigations are carried out using a FEM approach with measured weather data as well as different sub models for the boundaries. All modelling works are carried out very in close connections with experiments with the purpose to achieve high accordance between measured and simulated values. This paper shows experimental and simulated results and discusses also the temporal analysis of thermal IR data.
