DA07 Criteria for Moisture Control Design Analysis in Buildings

Published: 2020 | Pages: 32

DA07 Criteria for Moisture Control Design Analysis in Buildings is a technical resource that helps specify performance-based design criteria for predicting, mitigating, or reducing moisture damage to the building envelope, materials, components, systems, and furnishings, depending on climate, construction type, and HVAC system operation. This includes: a) Criteria for selecting analytic procedures; b) Criteria for inputs; c) Criteria for evaluation and use of outputs. It is designed for use by engineers, architects and contractors, as well as equipment owners, operators and specifiers.

Special note: This AIRAH technical guide is adapted from ASHRAE 160, which is an American voluntary consensus.
