Abstract:   (538 Views)
Ventilated rainscreens are one of the most effective solutions for the realization of the opaque parts of buildings, subjected to particularly high environmental stress: rain water pushed by the wind, warming effect of sunshine, frost. They fully enable the outer shield to separate from the building core, thereby allowing, inter alia, also to realize dark color of skins, up to absolute black, unrealizable with ETICS, unless we accept the high risk of serious pathologies. Ventilated rainscreens have been studied since the 70 s by Research Organizations like CSTB s Groupe Spécialisé n. 7, and now are currently used, designing them in an intuitive and synthetic manner, on the basis of the relevant literature. Up to this time it wasn t a calculation algorithm that would allow to optimize their design; fills this gap a specific calculation software, developed by the authors as part of the research activities of La.Te.C. - Laboratory of Building Technology, active in the School of Engineering of the University of Basilicata - Potenza. © 2016 The Authors.
