By Hugo S. L. C. Hens

The strength crises of the Seventies, persisting moisture difficulties, court cases approximately ailing constructions, thermal, visible and olfactory soreness, and the circulation in the direction of extra sustainability in construction development have driven development Physics to the leading edge of creating innovation. The societal strain to decrease power intake in constructions with no impairing usability acted as a set off to turn on the full inspiration of functionality established layout and development. as with any engineering sciences, development Physics is orientated in the direction of program, that is why, after a primary publication on basics this moment quantity examines functionality cause and function standards. outdoors and indoor weather stipulations are defined and calculation values are mentioned, the functionality inspiration is certain on the construction point and on the development envelope point, and heat-air-moisture fabric houses are defined.
The e-book comprises 35 years of training development Physics to architectural, construction and civil engineers, reinforced by way of forty years of expertise, learn and consultancy.

Example text

Noticeable is the large difference between the mean and the 95% line, indicating that indoor swimming pools range from humid to quite dry. 22. Apparently the air is too dry in natatoriums. A possible explanation is that most indoor swimming pools have an enclosure which is not designed to tolerate a relative humidity at comfort level without severe moisture problems. Anyhow, keeping relative humidity as low as measured, demands intensive ventilation and leads to a high end energy consumption. 23.

For that to be possible the boundary conditions, the geometry, the contact conditions between layers and the heat-air-moisture properties of the material used have to be known. Looking to the boundary condition outdoors, as for energy, the concept of a moisture reference year took shape. Agreed was to take a year of highest moisture built-up in an assembly with a ten years return rate. The problem was that each moisture event demanded a different year. Rain leakage for example is best served with a wet and windy year.
