Project Details

Description

The purpose of the project is to design a measuring programme for an advanced highly insulated office building at Rockwool International A/S in Denmark in order to document the expected low energy consumption and the indoor thermal environment. The design of the office building includes new developed highly insulated constructions without vapour barrier and use of natural ventilation, which still is a new area of research. The project is divided into three parts: 1) Design of the measuring system (number and position of required sensors), 2) Implementation of the computer controlled data acquisition and 3) Development of a data handling system, that almost instantly combines all the measured data into a few key values that will be presented on the Internet. The results will be valuable for further development of highly insulated building constructions and for the understanding of natural ventilation.
