Abstract:

The objective of the research was to ascertain how much the insulating performance of conventional constructions, having insulation over concrete decks, was affected by moisture. Also, the objective was to investigate properties of materials, their arrangement and dimensions which would yield a construction having an adequate degree of self-drying ability, combined with low winter moisture regain rate.
