MATERIALS AND SYSTEMS FOR THE BUILDING ENVELOPE
Innovative solutions for energy efficiency.
Developing high performance products and systems
The energy performance has become a priority for new technical regulations and for designers', builders' and buyers' choices for both new and retrofitted buildings.
The envelope confirmed its decisive role in determining the overall building energy consumption.
represents one of the most challenging goals for material producers but also a great opportunity of innovating
INNOVATING IN THE BUILDING SECTOR
The MITAI Laboratory–Ravenna Technopole Faenza Headquarters offers, in partnership with ENEA and CNR, expertise and know-how oriented to the innovation of the building sector:
- Energy aspects of building
- Innovative solutions for smart envelope
- Development of eco-efficient high performance materials
- Energy retrofitting of buildings
- Simulation of the thermo-hygrometric behaviour of the building envelope
- Energy audit and concurrent design
Materials are designed and qualified thanks to the most innovative testing methodologies. The performances of single materials and how different layers interact are evaluated not only regarding the thermal point of view, but considering the overall performance of the wall: mechanical strength, durability, thermo-hygrometric behaviour.
A guarded heat flow meter and numerical modelling tools are available at the research laboratory to perform experimental analyses and simulations for the improvement of thermo-insulating properties of innovative and traditional materials.
The research line regarding Materials and Systems for the Building Envelope is directly headed by CertiMaC
, thanks to expertise and on-the-field experience
gained through the Energy Efficiency Unit
dedicated to Sustainable Energy, Materials Innovation
, Envelope Performance
Head of research line:
Luca Laghi (CertiMaC).
