Abstract of a Paper From IRINFO 2009
Moisture intrusion is a serious problem for the building owner and the number one problem in construction defect lawsuits. It can shorten the life of the structure, increase the heating and cooling costs and adversely affect the indoor air quality (IAQ) of the building. Building owners may not smell, hear or see cues to a building problem until for instance; a huge stain appears on the wall, ceiling or floor as a result of water intrusion.
Window leaks, door leaks and roof leaks as well as cracked foundations, defective plumbing, cracked or delaminated stucco or EIFS, structural deficiencies, and improperly installed mechanical and electrical equipment are also frequently the causes of moisture problems and the subjects of building investigations.
Under varying conditions building components show differences in temperature because of differences in mass, moisture content and heat transfer. Continue reading →
This is a paper written for Infrared Thermographers, presented at the IR/INFO Conference, January 2003, in Orlando Florida, USA.
It is intact in every way, except it has been reformatted slightly to make it easier to read online. There is also a PDF version that can be downloaded from a link at the end of the article, if you wish to keep a copy for further reading.
The R&R (Repeatability and Reproducibility) of temperature-measuring devices applies to quantitative thermal imagers as well as the most precise temperature sensors used in standards calibration laboratories. Once you understand what’s involved with R&R and how it can affect the results of your measurements, you will think about real temperature and temperature difference measurements in a new way. The links to calibration and traceability are then relatively easy steps to take. The significance of calibration of a temperature-measuring thermal imager and the likely uncertainty of results in the field begin to make real sense. A better understanding of these measurement fundamentals can help you relate measurement results and their confidence limits. Continue reading →
