Abstract

Indices were developed and validated to assess the risk of surface humidification, based on the combined effect of surface condensation, WDR and the maximum drying capacity of the surface. The main advantage of these indices is the simplicity of the parameters used and their ability to establish the real load of surface condensation, WDR and drying capacity on the façade surface moisture content.
