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
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
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
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
