High porous inorganic materials for thermal insulating applications

Program: VEGA
Responsible solver: Ing. Matiašovský Peter, CSc.
Annotation: The project deals with the monitoring of hygrothermal regime of two monuments, namely an object nationalheritage, St. Martin’s Cathedral in Bratislava and an UNESCO monument, the St. James Church in Levoča.Monuments are located in different geographical positions. Both objects are built from materials having a porousstructure. In the pores may be found the air, water wapour, water or ice, depending on environmental conditions.A change in thermal conductivity of the porous structure is utilized for monitoring.
