Cluster: Past and Future Wood Use

Wood skeleton facades are sensitive to condensed water vapor as the load bearing capacity of wood can be weakened by the impact of mould growth in and on wooden beams.

In this project, you are given the chance to work with one of our partner companies to determine the characteristics of two types of wood skeleton facades systems , one being open and one being closed, for the diffusion of water vapor.

You will make use of our new innovative lab facility the Smart TinyLab. As part of the project, you will conduct a literature review, plan and execute an measurement experiment, analyse the obtained data and report your findings to our partner.
