Abstract

In this paper, a novel approach is utilised for longitudinal study to evaluate the dynamic behaviour of a building using autonomous infrared thermography. This unique test has been conducted to investigate the dynamic performance of a building continuously over several days. This paper presents the monitoring process to investigate the behaviour of a poorly insulated building using infrared thermography. The experimental work is conducted over 13 days and an image is captured every hour for analysis. The results show that poorly insulated walls significantly contribute to heat losses and the most significant location and time for such losses have been identified. Based on which, the paper suggests some simple measures to improve insulation. This suggested approach has been found beneficial to understand the dynamic thermal behaviour of buildings over significant period of time.
