Summary
The project included product development and materials research. The aim was to produce a wooden façade system with an attractive modern appearance and good constructive design with the help of modern woodworking technology. Important requirements to consider were that the system should have a contemporary, attractive expression and that the façade system should provide a product with high quality ambitions in terms of environmental impact. It should also be flexible and easy to use for architects and designers who want to create unique façades. The main focus in this study was about the visible wood surface appearance where the intention was to create a varied surface with interesting innovative designs, with a method that make it possible to always create new patterns. Two different façade cladding systems were developed by combining woodcraft tradition, new research, digital design tools and industrial processes in the wood construction industry. Prototypes with patterned surfaces on both individual boards joined together and on a system based on multi-layer solid wood panels were tested.

Summary
The objectives of this work include the following: · Conduct a series of water entry tests over a wide range of simulated wind pressure and WDR loads to measure the water entry rate passing the cladding through deficiencies located in a fibre cement cladding system; A1-100035-03.3 2 · Use the test results to develop correlations for determining the percentage of water entry rate through deficiencies as a function of pressure difference across the assembly and water spray rate onto the cladding surface; · Analyze the water entry data for the NBC stucco cladding for high wind pressures obtained in a previous study (see [3] for more details) and applicable for mid-rise and taller buildings and thereafter develop a correlation to determine the percentage of water entry rate as a function of wind pressure and WDR for absorptive claddings.
