Experimental and Numerical Study on the Effect of Nearby Obstacles in Surface Condensations on ETICS
To evaluate the influence of nearby obstacles, measurements were carried out on the West façade covered with ETICS of a building located in the University of Porto campus. Two different obstacle configurations were used: vertical obstacles—VO, parallel to the façade, and horizontal obstacles—HO, used as a shade.
