Summary:
Moisture and Buildings: Durability Issues, Health Implications and Strategies to Mitigate the Risks presents a new typology of resources, including principles and practices that explore and explain how moisture, material durability and the health of occupants are correlated and influence the building design process at both micro- and macro- scales. The title provides a clear and comprehensive guide to the influence of moisture on buildings. It addresses the theory and principles of hygrothermal processes, the latest developments in research, the main impact evaluation methods, the tools available, and includes several detailed case studies on hygrothermal assessment. The title consists of three parts, corresponding to the three main aspects of moisture in building performance - durability, health and comfort. In addition, the book considers the future of this critical area of building design. Presents advanced knowledge on hygrothermal processes and their interaction with buildings Integrates the three key areas of moisture transport and its impact on buildings, including durability, human health and comfort Considers the most useful computational tools for assessing moisture and building interactions Includes a section on the main European, American and Australian building codes Explains the risks of mold growth to human health, including growth models to assessment methods

In the climate-controlled buildings of today, moisture problemsaffect not only the useable life expectancy of the structure, butthe comfort and health of the occupants. This reference is thefirst to apply up-to-date moisture control and treatment techniquesin a problem/solution format. Opening with an introductoryexplanation of the nature and causes of mold, mildew, andcondensation, the book gives specific advice on heated, cooled, andcombination environments, plus a short course in the dynamics ofmoisture movement within buildings. Other invaluable coverageincludes: * clear, detailed recommended

Almost all homes, apartments, and commercial buildings will experience leaks, flooding, or other forms of excessive indoor dampness at some point. Not only is excessive dampness a health problem by itself, it also contributes to several other potentially problematic types of situations. Molds and other microbial agents favor damp indoor environments, and excess moisture may initiate the release of chemical emissions from damaged building materials and furnishings. This new book from the Institute of Medicine examines the health impact of
