    Get 19 peer-reviewed papers on the latest advances in research and applications related to hygrothermal performance of building envelopes.

    Top experts and researchers present key information on progress in laboratory testing, field monitoring, modeling, and validation of the hygrothermal properties of thermal insulation.

    The book's five sections focus on topics like:

    – measurement, analysis, and development of testing standards
    – assessment of system performance
    – simulation tools and engineering analyses for materials, systems, and in-situ hygrothermal performance issues
