Abstract [en]

When simulating historical buildings, available tools tend to be intended for simulations of either of two kinds: whole building simulations of energy-/moistureper formance, from which we can determine general conditions that may give an indication of potential damage risks, though unspecific, or detailed simulations that look into what takes place at specific points/materials, which provides us with knowledge about the specifics but without much context. Both are efficient scientific methods, but when dealing with reality we need both perspectives simultaneously. This paper describes multi-criteria simulations that take this into account, using a new tool integrating display of specific moisture-connected risk-factors into whole building simulations, providing a coherent basis for decision-making when retrofitting, and compares the results to case-study measurements.
