Thermal behavior in a lightweight building system was studied. The study was performed on a building under construction. Two methods were used. First the building was investigated from the outside and inside with an infrared thermographic camera. Thereafter the thermal behavior of a specific part of the building was evaluated with finite element analysis. The thermal behavior of the building was thereafter evaluated by combining the result of the two different methods. This paper describes the methodology and results of the investigation.
