damage risks Building simulation panel paintings stratification hisoric buildings
Project description

This project aims at the development of a simulation strategy to predict the indoor climate in historic church buildings in order to avoid damage risks at panel paintings.To this end a zonal modelling technique will be integrated in the BES-software TRNSYSv17. The coupled simulation tool allows to simulate temperature and humidity distributions in a simplified way.
