This paper is focused on hygrothermal assessment of the eave overhang detail in above-rafter placed thermal insulation roof system. Results of the long-term measurement of this detail performed on a real building as well as the testing of the measuring method are presented in this paper. Within this measurement the moisture of wooden elements performing an eave overhang of the roof was monitored primarily in order to verify their long-term functionality. In addition the temperature and relative humidity in the roof structure were measured as well. As part of this measurement, various design variants of above mentioned detail in combination with different compositions of the roof structure were compared. The long-term functionality of the assessed details is evaluated in the conclusion of this paper, taking into account especially hygrothermal status of wooden element, which is associated with threats of infestation of these elements by wood decaying fungi or insects.

The objective of this study is to evaluate the out of plane behavior of a masonry infill wall provided with an exterior thermal insulation system. For this purpose there were constructed two 1:1 scale specimens of masonry infill walls in order to compare a simple wall with one having already applied an exterior thermal insulation system composed by a polystyrene insulation and a protection layer of plaster and a glass fiber mesh. The load was applied through a horizontal force, acting at the mid height of the wall. Both specimens were tested in displacement control, using alternate force with 3 cycles per loading step. As it was expected, an increased stiffness and out of plane resistance was observed for the wall provided with the insulation system. Various observations were noticed related to the technology and overall behavior of the infill masonry wall.

Abstract  

Thermal insulation and fire protection have been a point of interest and discussion for several decades. Due to its excellent performances, basalt fiber has been widely used in the fields of thermal insulation and fire protection. The morphological structure and thermal stability of continuous basalt fiber were analysed using CH-2 projection microscope, scanning electron microscope (SEM) and thermogravimetry (TG). In order to evaluate the thermal radiation protective performance when exposed to fire environment, the spectral reflectances of nonwoven fabrics with different thicknesses were evaluated by ultraviolet-visible-near infrared (UV–Vis–NIR) spectrophotometer analysis. The jointly analysis of TG and UV–Vis–NIR spectrophotometer revealed that the basalt fiber exhibits good thermal stability, and the nonwoven fabrics present excellent thermal protective performance.

In recent years, surfaces of plaster facades increasingly have been covered with algae. This effect is reinforced by improved thermal insulation of the building.

Envelope e.g. due to the use of plastics, as well as the climate change and lower air pollution. The accumulation of condensation water is therefore of decisive importance.

So far, the amount of condensation water was determined with static weight methods. New developments in material research attempt to illustrate the susceptibility to condensation with different measurement methods. The differences can be seen in various systems and materials. Developing a model representation for the future planning of facades is thus possible for new and the existing building. This model can be used to derive new characteristics for new facade design.
