Prof. Arnold Janssens wins Best Paper Award
The paper entitled “Results of Belgian quality control framework for cavity wall insulation” by Arnold Janssens, Marc Delghust and Nathan Van Den Bossche won the Best Paper Award at the Central European Symposium on Building Physics in Dresden.
The paper is the result of several research projects focusing on retrofit cavity wall insulation. Ghent University has developed installations guidelines, and since the implementation of the quality framework in 2012 more than 20.000 construction sites have already been executed. The paper addresses the quality control framework, and shows that on-site measurements of the U-value concur with the calculated values.
