Infrared thermographic surveying of building debris: Tomsk high military school of communication engineering catastrophe case study

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

Infrared thermography was used in surveying dormitory debris of Tomsk High Military School of Communication Engineering in Siberia that collapsed on July 17, 97, with 12 students dead. In total, the debris had the ambient temperature but plentiful joints between vertical brick-made columns and horizontal concrete beams were detected to be abnormally warm. The reasons for this temperature elevation are discussed. The arguments pro and contra possibility to identify temperature patterns as abnormal mechanical stresses are considered.
