FWO scholarship: impact climate change on degradation


FWOThe FWO has granted Isabeau Vandemeulebroucke a personal PhD-scholarship for her project proposal on climate change. In collaboration with the department of Atmospheric Physics ensembles of climate projections are studied for different representative concentration pathways. To assess the durability of building materials and components hygrothermal simulation models are used. This project aspires to account for climate change in these hygrothermal simulations, and as well, the inherent uncertainties in climate change projections.
