Masonry walls, especially those of historic buildings, are often difficult to investigate. The current approach consists of analysing small portions of the structure. The techniques employed are often invasive and in any case incapable of providing a complete picture of the variety of problems to be solved. The aim of this work is to test the effectiveness and feasibility of thermal methods suitable for assessing the conditions of masonry. <br>Different physical models that mimics real conditions has been designed for this purpose. A number of anomalous elements were introduced in the models, to simulate the heterogeneity of the structure. <br>The same method has been applied in the analysis of thermal imaging to try to reconstruct buried walls. A quasi-real scale model has been constructed also in this case. <br>
