Cementitious Materials and Pozzolans

  • Fiber Cement Panels as Rain Screens

    1 LU HSW

    Moisture intrusion in a wall system can be the cause of building defects, as well as health ailments for the building's occupants, making rainscreens a very important tool in water mitigation. This course will review the cause and effects of moisture intrusion, and more specifically the forces that drive rainwater into a building. We will identify different rainscreen technologies and ASTM testing standards that measure their performance.
