WP5 Adaptation measures development and validation
Task 5.1 Developing and validating adaptation measures in physical context
Current guidelines for adaptation measures against WDR and flooding are not historic building specific. Alternatives to a waterproof zone made of concrete around the building foundation (tanking) for flooding and specific grouting and repointing mixtures for WDR are investigated. Adaptation measures are validated on structural, significance–reduction, insurance premium and implementation criteria.
Task 5.2 Validating adaptation measures in historic contex
Selected adaptation measures will be visualised on the buildings modelled in T4.1 and validated in their historic context. Data collected in T2.2 and T2.3 will be used to quantify effectiveness of current proposed techniques against documented historic ones.
