Characterization of a hygro-regulated Wall Base Ventilation System for Treatment of Rising Damp in Historical Buildings

Vasco Freitas, Ana Sofia Guimarães & Ana Sofia Guimarães
The treatment of rising damp in the walls of historic buildings is very complex, due to the thickness and heterogeneity of the walls. The techniques traditionally used for dealing with this problem (such as watertight barriers, injection of hydrofuge products, etc.) have sometimes proved ineffective, and that is why it is necessary to find a new approach. In recent years, the Building Physics Laboratory at the Faculty of Engineering, University of Porto, has been conducting...
