Abstract

A climatic database for computational service life assessments of historical buildings is presented. It is suitable for application in most current computational models of heat, moisture and salt transport. The included data were gathered from the authorized institute (CHMI) and the structure is expandable to other sources of weather observations, even in-situ measurements. Therefore, it can be used in designs aimed at the renovation of historical buildings on the territory of Czech Republic. The database is devised as a n o pen s ystem s o that i t c an b e extended in an arbitrary way, e.g., more sophisticated statistics or converting tool can be added. It also provides an easy-accessible and user-friendly interface for raw climatic data or long-time collected data important for service life assessments. Keywords: climatic database, historical buildings, computational assessment.
