The use of multiphysics to solve hygro thermal building physical problems related to insulating high rise building facades

Henk Schellen, Jos Van Schijndel, Edgar Neuhaus & Henk Schellen
In The Netherlands high rise buildings from 1960 and before hardly were insulated. To improve the thermal performance of the buildings the facades may be insulated afterwards. The energy loss will be reduced and thermal comfort will be improved by higher indoor surface temperatures. Problems however may be introduced by thermal bridge effects of anchors, floors and indoor walls. Further more the outer facade surface will be colder during winter time. Frost damage and internal...
