Work packages and results
The RIBuild research programme is divided into eight inter-correlated work packages (WPs) with each their deliverables and milestones. For a short description of each work package, please see the following. This page is continually updated with reports, deliverables and results.
WP1: Pre-renovation assessment
Examines common structural elements of historic buildings, determines their physical properties and classifies them according to type. The objective is to observe and describe the main symptoms of a deteriorating building envelope and study their possible causes.
WP leader: RTU
Participants: AAU, TUD, KUL,UNIVPM, DTU, SP, HES-SO
WP2: Material characterisation
Provides data for material properties and threshold values for historic building materials and existing insulation materials as a background for material characterisation models and guidelines for safe retrofitting measures.
WP leader: AAU
Participants: RTU, TUD, KUL, UNIVPM, DTU, SP, HES-SO, INTROFLEX
WP3: Case studies and laboratory measurements
Supports the research with high quality measurement data from both laboratory experiments on components and on-site monitoring of test buildings.
WP leader: TUD
Participants: AAU, RTU, KUL, UNIVPM, DTU, SP, INTROFLEX
WP4: Probabilistic assessment of internal insulation solutions
Develops an efficient strategy for the probabilistic hygrothermal assessment of internal solutions.
WP leader: KUL
Participants: AAU, TUD, HES-SO
WP5: Development of cost/benefit analysis and environmental impact assessment methodologies
Develops a probabilistic assessment methodology for assessing the environmental impact and cost/benefit of internal insulation solutions. The methodologies are based on Life Cycle Impact Assessment (LCA), Life Cycle Cost (LCC) and Cost-Optimal (CO) analysis.
WP Leader: UNIVPM
Participants: AAU, RTU, DTU, HES-SO
WP6: Application and evaluation of guidelines
Develops and assesses the methodology for internal insulation of historic buildings, based on the methodologies developed in WP4 and WP5.
WP Leader: DTU
Participants: AAU, RTU, TUD, KUL, UNIVPM, SP, HES-SO, INTROFLEX, EMA
WP7: Communication and dissemination
Coordinates the overall communication and network partners of RIBuild.
WP Leader: AAU
Participants: RTU, TUD, KUL, UNIVPM, DTU, SP, HES-SO, INTROFLEX, EMA
WP8: Project management
WP 8 is in charge of the overall management of RIBuild.
WP leader: AAU
