Building Material Characterization Laboratory

Our laboratory is dedicated to investigating hygrothernal properties of building materials.


If you are interested in cooperation, research and experiments in our lab, please contact Rasmus Lund Jensen, rlje@build.aau.dk. or Hicham Johra, hj@build.aau.dk

Building materials

Building materials have many different forms and functions, ranging from classic to conventional to new and sustainable. Understanding the physics behind materials is key to determining building performance in terms of energy consumption, indoor climate and material durability, and for improving Heat Air Moisture (HAM) modelling.
