Abstract
The question of how to map the 3D indoor temperature by infrared thermography is solved by a hybrid method which is a combination of infrared thermography and the well known heat diffusion equation. The idea is to use infrared thermography to get the surface temperature of each frontier of the 3D domain of interest. A suitable procedure is devoted to this, allowing an automatic scanning of the whole frontier, the registration of data and computation. These surface temperatures constitute the boundary conditions of the heat equation solved in the domain of interest. The solution of the heat equation allows analyzing and controlling the temperature of every point belonging to the considered domain. This temperature distribution is controlled over the time with a period of the same order than the necessary time to obtain the frontier temperatures and at the end to contribute to the analysis of the thermal comfort. The study is done for the steady-state conditions under various weather situations. In this case the temperature depends only on space coordinates. With such procedure, we can have an idea about the time necessary to reach thermal equilibrium; time which has a great impact on the thermal comfort sensation. The results yielded by this method are compared with those given by others techniques used for temperature measurement. Finally, the method is used to access 3D temperature distribution for various geometric shapes.
