Long perceived to be immune from such problems, ‘the lucky county’ has seen an increase in the occurrence and severity of condensation problems across disparate climate zones as standard designs start to fail.
An ABCB nationwide survey estimates that about 40% of new and existing buildings suffer from condensation. The NCC 2019 includestrodice is the first version of the code with a dedicated condensation management section under health and amenity.
The presentation considers the role played by various control layers and how they impact design and specification to aid the understanding and effective management of condensation risk.
WUFI® is a family of software products that allows realistic calculation of the transient coupled one- and twodimensional heat and moisture transport in walls and other multi-layer building components exposed to natural weather. WUFI® is an acronym for Wärme Und Feuchte Instationär—which, translated, means heat and moisture transiency. WUFI® software uses the latest findings regarding vapor diffusion and moisture transport in building materials. The software has been validated by detailed comparison with measurements obtained in the laboratory and on IBP’s outdoor testing field.
