The crawlspace syndrome
2006 (English)In: HB - Heal. Build.: Creating Heal. Indoor Environ. People, Proc., 2006, 335-340 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
Problems with mould growth in outdoor ventilated resulting in health problems and odors indoors have been increasing in frequency. The main root of the problem is that the temperature of the ground beneath the building is not in phase with the annual outdoor temperature variations. The paper shows how a building of a given shape can be efficiently modeled with sufficient accuracy. The calculation work is limited and the model has been implemented into an Excel worksheet. Applications where the calculations are utilized to assess mould risk and to analyze the effect of different measures for risk reduction, are given .
