Description and characterization of systems for external insulation and retrofitting for Denmark with emphasis on the thermal performance

Claus Christian Rudbeck, Sv Aa Højgaard Svendsen

    Research output: Book/ReportReportResearchpeer-review


    Lately there has been quite a large focus on retrofitting of the Danish buildings. The retrofitting of the building is done in order to solve one or more of the following problems: bad indoor climate, large use of energy for heating, insufficient durability or architectural unsatisfactory.In order to solve these problems insulation is often part of the retrofitting. As internal insulation has many disadvantages with regards to heat and moisture only systems for external insulation will be mentioned here.As there are several different systems for external insulation, each with different properties, there is a need for a systematic approach when the building designer chooses which system should be used on the building which is to be retrofitted.
