“Research activities at the Institute for Building Physics in the field of exterior wall constructions”

In the lecture, the author will present his over 20 years of experience in the field of research on the construction of external partitions of buildings. Particular emphasis will be placed on selected issues of thermal modernization, including the use of ETICS. The following issues will be discussed: (1) aging of ETICS components in controlled hygrothermal conditions, (2) resistance to wind suction force of glued ETICS, glued with additional mechanical fastening or mechanically fastened, and (3) resistance of individual layers of the ETICS to microbiological contamination. The third part will discuss the results of tests carried out in relevant operating conditions and with advanced computational tools for modeling and predicting microbiological growth.
