Then operative temperature can be accepted as the criterion of hygrothermal microclimate from the point of human physiology in an overwhelming number of cases: just in the area of low and high relative air humidity enthalpy needs to be considered (see the section, "The Influence of Humidity").
Bradshaw and Brinson (21) have demonstrated that this result holds for laminates undergoing general (isothermal or nonisothermal) physical aging and that the resulting material functions are not dependent on hygrothermal effects (such as thermal expansion, volumetric collapse, etc.
We will create and symbiotically use natural eco-materials for healthier indoor environments through hygrothermal (heat and moisture) regulation and the removal airborne contaminants through both chemical capture and photocatalysis.
In addition, prior research into the durability of the FRP-wood bond has focused on the consequences of environmental exposure and hygrothermal effects on the FRP-wood static bond strength (Lopez-Anido et al.
The hygrothermal properties are influenced by the tightness of the network, as demonstrated by Jacobs et al.
In addition, tests as per EOTA guidelines can be performed: during a four-week test phase, the wall is subjected to 80 hygrothermal and five frost cycles, which involve temperatures ranging from -20 to +70 AC, variable atmospheric humidity and spraying with water, followed by a detailed inspection (as per test regulation ETAG 004).
Modeling is used to predict the hygrothermal transport during solar-driven moisture transport.
You can't use dynamic hygrothermal models to predict moisture conditions in mass walls without this key piece of information.
Hygrothermal conditions typical of winter and summer conditions were reproduced in the laboratory to evaluate the cupping distortion with constructions made with different core and backing layers but with a constant surface layer.
While many of the mechanical properties of PBT composites have been studied (3-5), its durability has not been investigated in depth, particularly with regard to hygrothermal aging.
It assures high quality construction, rapid on-site erection, optimal hygrothermal performance from day one and results in energy and resource efficient buildings.
The cyclic vapor flow driven by solar radiation and the influence of the wall composition on the hygrothermal performance and durability of wall systems subjected to such flow needed to be further looked upon to provide a more comprehensive understanding of the phenomena.
