Abstract [en]

The Swedish National Council for Cultural Affairs, which wants to see improvements in the preservation of the nation's cultural heritage, has commissioned the Conservation Institute of National Antiquities (RIK) to carry out a survey of the current status of museum storage rooms all over the country. The method used was a physical inventory of a large number of museum storage rooms and the use of a relational database with object-oriented tools for storing and processing all the information gathered. The present condition of the collection in every storage room, correlated with its condition when first moved into the storage room, was used as one of the criteria to evaluate the capacity of the storage room to preserve the heritage. The quantity of data gathered is large enough to be representative for the country as a whole. The results of the Swedish Technical Museum Storage Room Survey revealed that more than 40% of local museums' storage rooms and 20% of regional and central museums' storage rooms are considered unacceptable for preserving collections.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to find more information of the complicated air flow pattern in the Schönbrunn palace. The aim is to improve the control of the air infiltration. We have used a passive tracer gas technique, a special case of the constant injection technique, called the homogeneous emission technique. The results gives Air Change Rate's (ACH) of 0,7 to 1,7 in different rooms and parts of the palace. Wind driven ventilation dominates stack driven ventilation. We found a considerable air flow between floors. Simple one zone calculations of air leakage over windows partly confirmes the ACH measured. The palace management will use the results of the investigation in the ongoing planning process to improve the indoor climate and abating the indoor deterioration.

Abstract [en]

Preventive conservation is described by Thomson (1986) as both the control of the environment to minimize degradation by ageing, the destruction of art exhibits and material, and the treatment of exhibits and materials so that they are stabilised and degradation slowed. This paper concerns the control of the environment, which in conservation means mainly the control of humidity. The aim must be to keep relative humidity (Rh) within the acceptable limit. What comprises a suitable limit is still the subject of debate, as the literature quotes quite a wide range of figures from around 40-70 percent Rh, depending on the geographic location, the building, and the objects being preserved. In the projects described here, an upper limit of 65 percent Rh has been used. The large technical survey on museum storage rooms in Sweden (Holmberg and Johansson 1996) showed that unheated but dehumidified buildings could be an acceptable alternative to traditional buildings with mechanical and electrical systems for indoor climate control. This paper describes measurements of air infiltration, relative humidity and temperature at three unheated historic palaces in Sweden: Skokloster, Läckö and Salsta. The descriptions are aimed at conservators, curators and other museum staff, rather than engineers, although some technical explanations have been included. As a result of the measurements, three solutions for improvements were tried: at Skokloster, almost nothing was done; at Läckö, the building envelope was improved by installing inner windows, and dehumidification was installed; and at Salsta, the building envelope was improved by a "Tempereirung" system, in which copper pipes carrying warm water were installed within the walls.
