Microclimatic Parameters. State of the Art and the Need for Improved Data.

Mikkel Kristian Kragh, Sv Aa Højgaard Svendsen

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingArticle in proceedingsResearchpeer-review


    Review paper dealing with the outspoken need for models describing the microclimate at the exterior of the building envelope. In building physics, detailed hygrothermal calculations are performed on the basis of meteorological data, not considering the complex interaction with specific features of the proposed building and its surroundings. KEYWORDS: Microclimate, moisture balance, driving rain, condensation, convection, recommendations for further studies.
