VIDEO: Internal insulation in practice
Research activities in RIBuild include tests of various internal insulation systems and how they perform in actual buildings under various climate conditions.
Researchers have been monitoring the hygrothermal conditions in the interface between walls and insulation systems as this is an area of risk of condensation, mould growth, wood degredation etc.
In this video PhD student Tessa Kvist Hansen from the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) tells you about one of the case studies i Copenhagen, that DTU has been involved in.
Results from the case studies conducted by DTU have been published in the research article Long term in situ measurements of hygrothermal conditions at critical points
in four cases of internally insulated historic solid masonry walls (Tessa Kvist Hansen, Søren Peter Bjarløv, Ruut Hannele Peuhkuri, Maria Harrestrup in: Energy & Buildings (2018)).
Get news and results from RIBuild
RIBuild is more than halfway through the project, and every three months from now untill the end of the project we will distribute a newsletter with focus on different aspects of the challenges and solutions when installing internal thermal insulation. At the end of the project, you will receive RIBuild's final guidelines on how to install internal insulation.
