Potential of Using Infrared Thermography for Determination of Skin Wetness and Thus Perceived Thermal Comfort of Pigs

Australian Journal of Multi-disciplinary Engineering
Volume 7 Issue 1 (2009)

Abstract: Preliminary investigations were undertaken to evaluate infrared thermography as a potential tool to assess the thermal characteristics of pigs, and specifically the effects, duration and extent of skin wetness. In this study, the specific aims were to evaluate the impact of timing, camera angle and impact of diameter curve on the resulting infrared images of pigs. Based on the preliminary results, a number of recommendations were made to maximise the success of taking thermal images of live pigs.
