A unique publication featuring a comprehensive overview of the ways water impacts building envelopes. A diverse range of professionals in related fields have written 22 peer-reviewed papers focusing on the following key areas:
Exterior Insulation and Finish Systems -- 5 papers examine theoretical, modeling and system design perspectives as well as new system approaches and retrofit alternatives.
Moisture Migration, Modeling and Condensation -- numerous issues such as moisture evaluation and analysis methods and condensation problems in an enclosed swimming pool and ice rink are explored in 4 papers.
Masonry Systems -- 7 papers address masonry concerns including mortar bond, foam insulation, alternative water control mechanisms, prefabricated assemblies and flashing and alternative system detailing.
Detailing, Testing and Case Studies -- An informative and practical view of 6 specific project case studies are presented here.
This is an invaluable resource for materials engineers and researchers, design specialists, waterproofing contractors, and building contractors.
