Measurements and simulations of moisture in naturally ventilated barns in cold climates

Thomas Thiis & Thomas Thiis
ABSTRACT: New demands in farming industry in Norwegian sub-arctic regions have caused a need for larger animal buildings. To minimize the cost of the buildings, they are built without insulation. Uninsulated animal buildings in cold climates raise many new engineering challenges. Because of the lack of insulation, the walls of the buildings are exposed to a high risk of condensation. This is met with a high ventilation rate to remove the excess moisture. To monitor...
