Abstract

Density express the relationship between the amount of material and volume, in building materials is one of the most important physical parameters. This research evaluated the potential of the infrared thermography (as a nondestructive technique) for the onsite physical assessment of density of different building materials. For this purpose, laboratory experiments were conducted on three types of materials: timber, concrete and stone and measurements were performed with a FLIR infrared camera.
