Paper Abstract

In the summer of 1979 a task group was formed under ASTM Subcommittee C16.30 Section 7. The task group was asked to develop standard practices for the utilization of infrared (IR) imaging devices for the in-situ evaluation of building insulation systems. The group's work to date has concentrated on bounding the problem and prioritizing the needs for standard procedures. Most recently, the group has concentrated on a very specific utilization of infrared (IR) imaging as a qualitative instrument for building retrofit insulation inspections. White papers on equipment specifications and interpretation of imagery were generated as guides to writing the first draft of a standard practice document on this insulation retrofit inspection problem. The first draft describes the knowledge level of the inspector, the procedures for the inspection and the instrumentation required for various levels of diagnostics. Care has been taken to insure compatibility with ASHRAE Draft Standard 101P and to insure that the document will serve the user community as a guide to proper application of infrared in this infrared (IR) applications area.
