AbstractThe objectives of this annex were to model and study the fundamental physical phenomena behind and the consequences of heat, air and moisture transfer through new and retrofitted insulated envelope parts. A special emphasis will be put on the energy quality, depending on air tightness, on the hygric behaviour and on the durability aspects of the construction. The knowledge gained by this analysis was applied to performance formulation and to checking the design and production of new retrofitted parts. This task includes data collecting on thermal hygric and air properties of materials and layers and substantial fresh measuring work, especially on the moisture and air properties.
