AbstractDetermining temperature and moisture conditions in an enclosure assembly can be useful and is often essential when investigating building problems, designing a new building or retrofitting an existing structure. This note provides easy to follow steps for calculating temperature gradients and identifying dew points. Seven different examples are presented along with charts, diagrams and explanatory notes.
