Abstract: Abstract: This report contains annotated abstracts of over 100 reports (66 more than the 1977 edition) on the new, but rapidly expanding subject on infrared thermography of buildings. Infrared thermography of buildings (IRTB) is a rapid, noncontact, real-time technique that uses an infrared thermal imaging system to detect heat loss or gain, structural defects, moisture, and other anomalies in building envelopes. Photographs (thermograms) or video recordings of the imagery provide hard-copy documentation of faults detected. The references cover remote sensing airborne surveys of large numbers of buildings, close-up ground surveys of individual buildings, and qualitative (speculative) and semi-quantitative (ground-truth) field surveys. The report presents examples of thermographic energy audits, roof moisture surveys, building retrofit surveys, solar panel analysis, window assessments, and other practical applications by government agencies and private sector survey teams. It lists research and development efforts to provide fundamental information to improve quantification accuracy, evaluate equipment, and develop interpretation standards, along with examples of daily usage in contract specifications, public awareness programs, and product testing.
