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

Deliverables WP1
D1.1 Report on historical building types and combinations of structural solutions
D1.2 State of the art on historic building insulation materials and retrofit strategies 

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

Deliverables WP2

D2.1 Report on the material properties
D2.2 Threshold values for failure, linked to types of building structures and failure modes (not yet approved by the European Union)

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

Deliverables WP3

D3.1 Closed Technology Loop of Laboratory Experiments and Simulation Models in the Field of Internal Insulation Testing
D3.2 Monitoring Data Basis of European Case Studies for Sound Performance Evaluation of Internal Insulation Systems Under Different Realistic Boundary Conditions (not yet approved by the European Union)

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

Deliverables WP4

D 4.1 Basic probalistic analysis of hygrothermal performance of interior insulation
D4.2 Metamodelling approaches for hygrothermal performance of interior insulation (not yet approved by the European Union)

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

Deliverables WP5

D 5.1 Report and tool: Probability based Life Cycle Impact Assessment
D5.2 Report and tool: Probability based Life Cycle Cost (not yet approved by the European Union)

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
