Improving Durability Of Wooden Beam Bearings In Inside Insulated Walls By Tempering The Beam’S Heads, Paul Wegerer, Thomas Bednar

International Building Physics Conference

Improving durability of wooden beam bearings after a thermal renovation via interior insulation is highly demanding for planners. Because of an isolated thermal bridge in the area of the wooden beam head the risk of condensation water forming in this area increases after installing interior insulation. The problem with wooden beam ends has been analysed increasingly in the last few years by many research institutions as wooden ceiling constructions are common in existing buildings. Furthermore, thermal renovation makes a vital contribution regarding improving the energy-efficiency of existing buildings. In this paper a method to temper wooden beam ends is introduced ...
