Moisture conditions in cavity walls with wooden framework

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The value of the air space in a cavity wall is discussed and examples of the moisture content in the masonry with different thicknesses of the insulation and width of the air space are illustrated as well as examples of how different measures affect the humidity in the inner parts of the insulation when a cavity wall is exposed by sunshine after heavy driving rain.
