    Sixteen peer-reviewed papers cover the latest research on condensation in exterior building wall systems. This new publication focuses on new ideas and concepts, the consistent application of the principles of physics, and the use of appropriate analytical techniques.

    Topics cover:
    Overview: Insulation Draws Water—proposes a framework for reviewing the link between moisture control prescriptive requirements and performance outcomes.
    Testing/Analysis—criteria for moisture control design analysis in buildings; laboratory tests of window-wall interface; moisture measurement, damage, and condensation potential, and more.
    Case Studies—controlling condensation, fenestration condensation resistance, thermal performance of window panes, and others.
