AbstractMoisture related problems are common in buildings leading to costly damage and uncomfortable indoor environments. This course aims at providing the necessary theoretical background and training in order to foresee and avoid these problems.
Objective• to develop a basic understanding of mass transport and buffering
• to become aware of potential moisture-related damage and health risks
• to learn how to (i) design building components and (ii) assess their hygrothermal performance
Content• hygrothermal loads
• conservation of mass (dry air, water vapor, liquid water)
• moist air: constitutive behavior, transport, potential problems and solutions
• liquid water: constitutive behavior, transport, potential problems and solutions
• exercises
Lecture notesHandouts, supporting material and exercises are provided online via Moodle.
Prerequisites / NoticePrior knowledge of "BP I: heat" is required.
