Reduction in CO2 emission is the hot topic in current global situation. The heating energy used for buildings is the second largest share of the overall energy consumption in Germany. The primary causes are inefficient building envelopes. In order to identify the poorly insulated building envelopes we are developing a UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) based infrared thermographic system.
An infrared camera mounted on a UAV captures the thermal images to calculate the heat transfer coefficient (U-value) of the building envelope. Many factors influence the measurement which may lead to a large error in the U-value. This internship will mainly contribute to obtain a better understanding of the infrared thermographic measurements by carrying out experiments at our test facility in Jülich. The data analysis will be used to reduce the measurement errors and develop a method to determine U-values using infrared thermography. It is an excellent opportunity to work in a cutting edge topic, gain experience on real optical hardware, and improve your measurement and data analysis skills.
