Abstract:

Energy efficiency and comfort are two new critical expectations of the modern building owner. With the recent technological advancement in all fields of engineering, buildings are also expected to be durable. Premature or accelerated ageing with the associated damage due to inappropriate design or operation is simply no longer acceptable. To prevent moisture-induced damage in buildings, hygrothermal simulation tools should be used to design envelope parts with good performance. The building envelope responds to the dynamic exterior and interior environmental ...
