Beurteilung einer Schimmelpilzgefahr durch das hygrothermische Rechenverfahren WUFI

Abstract: To avoid mould growth, it is necessary to develop preventive measures taking into consideration the conditions for mould growth as well as the real non-stationary boundary conditions. Thus, a new method was developed to predict mould growth under non-stationary hygrothermal boundary conditions, which is based on the comparison of measured and calculated nonstationary boundary conditions and conditions for mould growth, which occur in buildings. By means of this bio-hygrothermal method the humidity content of mould spores is modelled and the critical water content is assessed, when spore germination occurs.
