Viewing and interpreting thermal images is one the most common tasks performed by thermographers. While most infrared instrumentation is relatively easy to operate, accurate image interpretation depends upon proper selection and use of thermal imaging equipment as well as a proper understanding of heat transfer concepts and infrared theory.

This short course will focus on key issues affecting proper interpretation of thermal images and how to avoid costly errors. This course is a must for anyone who uses a thermal imager.

Learning outcomes

This course will enable you to:

  • select infrared equipment appropriate for specific imaging applications
  • identify common error sources when interpreting thermal images
  • understand and compensate for errors caused by emittance, transmittance and reflectance
  • choose confirming techniques and tools for data verification
  • employ best practices for optimizing and storing imagery

Intended audience
This material is intended for anyone wishing to use an infrared thermal imager.  Course is designed for in-house and contract thermographers as well as managers of infrared inspection programs.
