Paper Abstract

This article reviews the recent developments in thermographic standards for the inspection of the building envelope. A general overview of the present standards and standards activities is given. The purpose of the standards is explained, their general content outlined and how they are to be used is discussed. The results of a field evaluation of the accuracy of thermographic inspectors in locating insulation voids in cavity walls are summarized. The reasons for the observed inconsistencies in the results of the inspections of the same building by differnent thermographic inspectors are given. In general, at present, it must be concluded that improvements in existing inspection techniques are needed before thermographic inspections can be considered accurate.
