A popular retrofit option is to install an exterior insulation and finish system EIFS to the walls of existing buildings. This study evaluates the thermal and moisture performance of such a system with a vented wall assembly. In addition to being a case study, this field monitoring was intended...
Knowledge of the expected long-term performance of building envelopes subjected to simultaneous heat and moisture transport is critical during the design stage. In the past thirty years researchers have concentrated their efforts in extensive laboratory experiments. These experiments have been...
Monitoring thermal conductivity changes in thin-sliced cellular plastics has drastically reduced the time required to evaluate the long-term aging of insulating foams. Monitoring the weight changes of closed-cell thin-slices provides data which can be analyzed to determine the effective...
