  • Abstract The Belgian building stock is characterised by a vast amount of houses with non-insulated cavity walls, creating high potential for blown-in retrofit cavity wall insulation. Although retrofit insulation is becoming standard practice, there is a prevalent uncertainty about test procedures and evaluation standards. Moreover, hardly any information is available on the amount of water ingress through insulated or non-insulated cavity walls. In this paper, existing test procedures and… CONTINUE READING
