This study investigated the thermal and hygric limits and the field body temperature and hydration state for 3 bee genera across an urban environment: Agapostemon (sweat bees), Apis (honeybees), and Bombus (bumblebees).
The thermal and hygric properties of construction materials are dependent on actual temperature and moisture content affecting the hygrothermal performance of the entire wall system or even the whole building [11-14].
Coating detachment, materials deterioration, and decrease of thermal, hygric, and mechanical performance are the most common drawbacks of mould growth from the building point of view [1-4].
Designers will be able to more confidently perform hygrothermal modeling to optimize their buildings, as well as promote the advantages of energy and hygric modeling to their clients.
Moisture transfer through mortar joints: interface resistances or hygric property changes?, in Proceedings of the 12th Symposium for Building Physics, 29-31 March 2007, Dresden, Germany.
Within the Forest District concerned in the study, eight habitat types of forests occur, among which the mesic and hygric deciduous forest--Tillio carpinetum covering 64.7 % of the Forest District's area predominates.
Mechanical, Thermal and Hygric Properties of Buildings Materials
Soils are observed to be generally shallow and include cryogenic mineral soils, poorly developed podzols, and some hygric organic soils.
Therefore, the laboratory measurement of basic physical, mechanical, hygric, thermal properties and durability properties of the analyzed building stones is done, in order to get reliable input data for the subsequent computational modeling of their performance under real climatic conditions corresponding to several different Czech regions.
Fossil pollen at Cerros Negros appears to reflect a grassland with junipers, mesquites, and possibly oaks in proximity to a hygric system with walnuts, hackberries, ashes, and sedges.
Materials are selected from a material database or specified by providing thermal and hygric properties so that assemblies can be built from one or more layers of different materials.
Although the ventilation supply is kept constant, building fabric hygric inertia induces some slope in the vapor pressure excess from winter to summer while related time lag results in a little higher excess in autumn than in springtime.
