Project description

To protect cultural heritage it is very important to now how the moisture flux in the construction proceeds depending on the environmental conditions , material characteristics, imperfections and renovation procedures. With this in mind, the hygrothermics of thes constructions will be analyzed by a combination of computer simulations, experimental laboratory research in labrathory/on site and case -specific measurements.
