As part of the RIBuild research programme, KU Leuven is in charge of developing an efficient strategy for the probabilistic hygrothermal assessment of interior insulation solutions.

The research will result in:

  • a methodology for the efficient hygrothermal assessment of building components based on direct 3D simulations and indirect reduced-order-modelling approaches.
  • a methodology for the efficient probabilistic evaluation of buildings’ performance  based on direct sequential-sampling methods and indirect surrogate-modelling techniques.
