The measurement of building heat loss through a roof structure and the determination of the structure's thermal resistance using an airborne infrared scanner are examined. Quasi-steady, one-dimensional heat flow through the roof is assumed. The study consists of two parts. First, the effects of the thermal resistance and the heat flow through the roof on the outer surface temperature of the roof are determined. Second, the effects of the surface temperature, surface properties, sky radiation and other parameters on the total infrared radiation leaving the roof surface are calculated.
