Theme 3 – Building Envelope and Energy Performance
Project T3-3 Innovative Building Technologies for High-performance Wood Buildings
PI: Louis Gosselin
Monitoring of building envelope performance of existing buildings can provide vital information in the development of models and design guidelines. However, the cost and time required to install sensors and data-logging systems for long-term monitoring are often prohibitive. This sub-project aims to develop a cost-effective, real-time system to monitor the hygrothermal state of building envelopes and indoor environmental conditions. Three novel approaches of using powerless, embedded and virtual sensors, will be developed, tested, and compared. The expected outcome will be a complete field monitoring test system, including data acquisition, storage, and transmission. The team working on this sub-project will ollaborate with the teams on sub-projects T3-1-B and T3-1-C.
