Description:

At the assesssment of envelope structures durability the long- term influence of wind and rain together with a solar and longwave radiation on external surface is an important factor. This influence is reflected in the resultant hygrothermal state of structures and in durability of their surface layers: frost resistance, cracks initiation, corrosion and biological degradation.

Proposal:

Modelling of long-term vertical envelope structure exposure to simultaneous wind, radiation and rain in concrete location in Slovakia, numerical simulation of long-term hygrothermal performance of surfece layers.

Inovation:

Replacement of contemporary empirical approaches by the methodology based on detailed modelling.

Application:

Diagnostics of deffects and renovation of buildings.

State:

Nowadays the accessible climatic database for territory of Slovakia is processed.

Cooperation:

Contract.
