Environmental Chamber

The Building Research Park welcomes the addition of a 4x8m Environmental Chamber funded by the EPSRC. This giant chamber can mimic the environment through controlled simulations and allow evaluation of large scale construction material under weather conditions. By introducing a panel, the chamber creates a sandwich which simulates the indoor condition on one side of the construction material and external conditions on the other side. Weather conditions such as extreme temperature, humidity, wind and rain can be simulated making the research at the park even more relevant. Not only can we see what happens in the real environment, but we can look at how predicted environmental pressures affect the world of construction material.
