FRAME

FRAME - Future Envelope Assemblies and HVAC Solutions

The main goals of the FRAME-project were to identify effects of climate change and increased thermal insulation on moisture performance of envelope assemblies, energy consumption of buildings and indoor air climate. The critical climatological test years, which are used to evaluate the moisture performance of envelope assemblies, were determined in both present and future Finnish climates. A new mould growth model was used. Two reports were published (in Finnish).

FRAME was a cooperation project. Analyses related to moisture management of building processes were performed by TUNI construction management and economics research group as well as Mittaviiva Ltd. Analyses related to energy consumption and indoor air conditions were performed by the Department of Energy Technology of Aalto University. International partner universities were Chalmers and Lund in Sweden and Dresden in Germany.

Research period was September 1st 2009 – September 30th 2012. The project was funded by TEKES, Ministry of the Environment, CFCI and several companies.
