Instrumentation for geognostic investigation
Thermography is one of the most widely used non-destructive methods in the diagnosis of buildings diseases. All the buildings, even if made in a workmanlike manner, are subject to degradation due to the materials aging and to the great lack of maintenance. For a correct analysis of a product's deterioration level, often thermography is joined to such destructive interventions as taking samples for physic-chemical tests to be made in laboratory; in some cases it is used as the only method of survey.
Thermography, like all other non-destructive testing, allows:
- to work inside buildings without interrupting the normal activities and with minimal inconvenience for the inhabitants
- to avoid further trauma to uneven structures, limiting the number of destructive assays to the really representative points, so that to formulate a general diagnostic profile.
