AbstractThe paper reports on a laboratory evaluation of conditions suitable for the formation of condensation at the window frame perimeter of the interface assembly as a function of both temperature differential and pressure difference across the test assembly. A summary of the laboratory test protocol is provided that includes a description of the test set-up and apparatus, fabrication details of the specimen and information on instrumentation and calibration and experimental results for one type of window (box window).
