Durability studies in the field - Assessment and Evaluation Leibniz Universität Hannover, Germany 25-26 June, 2014

Field durability studies are basic elements for performance testing of bio-based building materials. Besides traditional graveyard tests, which are well established for wood-based Products, more and more new test methods are of interest. To adequately reflect the intended use conditions, novel methods including moisture monitoring in various above-ground situations are required. The goal of this training school was therefore to cover various aspects of field durability testing, which was held over 2 full days.
