AbstractThe Canadian approach to design accepts the presence of some construction deficiencies and calls for a multiple-line of defense. Until now, such a design has been based on the qualitative assessments rooted in experience, i.e., tradition, and involved little integration with the newly emerging analytical tools, e.g., advanced hygrothermal models. The relation between the design and climatic conditions acting on a building is not well established. Research should be undertaken to clarify the relationship between climate and the moisture performance of a given wall assembly, i.e. to enhance the predictability of moisture performance for different wall assemblies when constructed with some deficiencies and exposed to a given climate.
