Bedömning av tekniska möjligheter och begränsningar med termografering vid inspektion av betongkonstruktioner : En studie med tillämpning på nedströmssidan av betongdammars frontplatta
Sammanfattning: The purpose of this thesis is to investigate the visibility of cracks and other damages on concrete structures using thermography, with application on the downstream side of the concrete dam’s front plate. The project is in collaboration with Vattenfall AB whom expressed to investigate new alternative methods when inspecting hydroelectric dams. The methods used in the project were field inspection, laboratory research and simulation of a concrete dam. The field inspections and laboratory research were used to compare actual conditions with those required for thermography to be carried out in a desirable manner. Simulation was used as a tool to see if condensation on the surface of the structure occurs, in order to determine whether or not thermography is suitable. The result of this thesis show that there are difficulties in locating cracks in the field, as there were not sufficiently large temperature differences on the surface of the construction. The study in the laboratory show that cracks can be identified when the moisture application is concentrated to the crack formation, the surrounding surface is somewhat drier than the crack and that the temperature differences on the surface of the sample are greater than approximately 1 ° C.
