Planning for Material Characterisation and Research
Based on the findings from WP1.2, WP2.2 and WP2.3, this WP develops a comprehensive laboratory concept for the installation of instruments, procedures and test stands for the characterization and research of building materials and construction products. Essential material tests necessary for the effective implementation of the basic energy standards are identified and prioritized.
Currently in Vietnam in the standards The test methods listed are checked for completeness in the sense of the research objective and the list of essential tests is extended if necessary. Afterwards, a comparison with the test equipment and testing facilities available in the cooperating university and ministry laboratories takes place. Based on this, the need for test equipment and test equipment to implement energy standards is defined. The inventory of already existing on-site testing facilities and the possibilities of installing other test facilities is provided by employees of the Fraunhofer-IBP (scientific) and by employees of the company TAURUS (technically) performed. Further material properties relevant for other important building physical performance aspects (e.g. hygro-thermal behavior, durability or indoor comfort) are identified and provided for the second phase of the implementation. Here, too, a comparison with the possibilities on site and the determination of the need for testing and metrological facilities for the determination of hygrothermal characteristics, durability, comfort and other characteristics. Here are design requirements and necessary input data for advanced simulation models as a reference for the scope of investigation. Instruments and test systems that are suitable for testing (material parameter testing) and materials research (understanding and developing material and system behavior) are supplemented, developed and installed as far as possible in cooperation with the industrial partner TAURUS (if not possible, a Plan developed for future installation).
