INTERNATIONAL WORKSHOP EMERISDA | Effectiveness of Methods against Rising Damp in Buildings, European practice and perspective

CNR Area della Ricerca di Bologna, aula 215 | 18 NOVEMBRE 2016




Moisture in general, and rising damp in particular, is a significant cause of decay in historic buildings. Degradation processes such as biological growth, corrosion, frost and salt crystallization arise or are intensified in the presence of rising damp. A treatment against rising damp is therefore (when possible!) generally advised for protection and durable conservation of a historic building.

In this workshop, the results of the international EMERISDA-project will be presented. The workshop is practice-oriented: it addresses questions usually encountered in the practice of conservation and it proposes methodologies for the diagnostics and the choice of suitable intervention techniques.

Within the EMERISDA-project a decision support tool has been developed, which can help users in the assessment of the presence of rising damp and in the choice for a suitable intervention in a specific building. This decision support tool will be presented during the workshop.
