Paper Abstract

Results were presented from ground-based infrared thermographic studies performed by the National Bureau of Standards (NBS) on eight federal office buildings. Infrared thermography was utilized to observe the thermal anomalies in those buildings, as part of a diagnostic program to evaluate the thermal integrity of building envelopes. Thermographic data were collected via complete exterior scannings and selected interior scannings at regions where thermal defects were identified or suspected during the outside inspections. Analysis from thermographic inspections with examples of defects found in some of these buildings are also included. The potential applications of the diagnostic procedures to both new and existing buildings are discussed.
