Abstract

A light pipe prototype with a concentrating mirror
parabolic head was tested for temperature profiles.
The purpose of the testing was to find maximal
temperature and estimate potential problems for
overheating in the position of the pipe installation
into roof structures. Infrared thermography
monitoring of the light pipe prototype and
temperature measurements give overview about
the light pipe system temperature distribution. It
was proven that the light pipe head temperature
was increased for more than 100°C in thermally
insulated structure under intensive infrared
radiation.

Keywords

IR thermography, temperature distribution, light pipes
