Field Monitoring and Simulation of a Historic Mass Masonry Building Retrofitted with Interior Insulation

Field Monitoring and Simulation of a Historic Mass Masonry Building Retrofitted with Interior Insulation

By: Kohta Ueno, John Straube, and Randy Van Straaten. Abstract: Load-bearing masonry buildings are a significant portion of the existing building stock, and there is a great deal of interest in adding thermal insulation to the walls of these structures. Exterior insulation provides the ideal conditions for building durability; however, many buildings cannot be retrofitted […]

Hygrothermal Simulations and Analysis of Solar-Driven Inward Water Vapor

Hygrothermal Simulations and Analysis of Solar-Driven Inward Water Vapor

By Jonathan Smegal Abstract: This report describes a hygrothermal analysis of wall assemblies constructed with rockwool continuous exterior insulation in DOE climate zones 1 to 4. Hygrothermal analysis of these wall assemblies was conducted with WUFI® Pro 5.1. WUFI is a transient heat and mass transfer model which can be used to assess the heat […]
