Paper Abstract

During recent years civil application of thermography in Germany has experienced a remarkable development in general but especially in the building trade. On the one hand there was an increase of user-oriented know-how,and on the other hand a growing public knowledge and acceptance mainly induced by a lot of governmental and commercial publications on energy conservation. From a practical viewpoint a description of interesting possibilities but also narrow limitations of four present-day application areas is given : 1. scanning of buildings from inside and outside - for fault analysis and all kinds of expertises including popular energy conservation consulting 2. mapping of plastered half-timbered houses (constructed in 13.-17. century, plastered in some parts of germany in 18. and 19. century) - for renovation and re-establishment of original historical shape 3. visualization of reinforcement in concrete for careful hole-drilling In large structures f.i. nuclear power plants according to safety regulations 4. localization of leakages in floor heating and tap water systems - for cost effective repair and status reports, mainly by order of insurance-companies.
