Abstract

An in situ monitoring system for the study of environmental influences on durability, destructive process and hygrothermal performance of building materials and structures is designed. The experience gained during the laboratory and semi-scale critical experiments is utilized, as for the test probes and data acquisition systems. Taking into account that testing on real structures is done at their common operation conditions, the extent of testing cannot be as wide as in the laboratory conditions. On this account, a lower number of field variables is monitored and the data acquisition systems are simpler than in laboratory and semi-scale conditions. The designed in situ monitoring system is applied for a typical building commonly constructed on the territory of Central Europe and the results of the initial part of the monitoring process are presented. Keywords: in situ monitoring, relative humidity, temperature, hygrothermal performance.
