AbstractThe objective of the experimental study of the project is to characterize the thermal response and the moisture resistance of test specimens of selected wall assemblies subjected to indoor and outdoor conditions typically encountered in the Canadian North. The data collected will provide input for a complementary study aiming at predicting hygrothermal performance under different scenarios using numerical modeling software.
