Paper Abstract

Since September 1978, Public Works Canada has been leading an interdepartmental Canadian Government project aimed at using thermography to diagnose problems in building performance in various climates. It has been demonstrated that the thermographic camera provides insight into how building systems actually perform, by "seeing" the thermal effects of various mechanisms of heat transfer. This insight is arrived at by either interpreting surface thermal patterns with IR cameras or thermal patterns of air movement using tracer gases. These results are significant in that they indicate how buildings perform rather than how they are built, thus encouraging new ideas in building design and services.
