Havermans, J.B.G.A. Ariës, M.B.C. Nijland, T.G. TNO Bouw en Ondergrond Publication year 2008 Abstract Buildings are designed to protect people from external influences and to create a safe, healthy and comfortable living environment. These demands should be fulfilled for a pre-defined design-lifetime. Changes in climate will effect the demands set to both new and existing buildings. In this paper, three items related to climate change are discussed. The paper focuses on the question what adaptation measures are needed for existing and new building stock. These items relate to structural safety, indoor health and durability of building materials. Analysis of these items will be based on the IPCC reports, and worked out by KNMI in the PCCC report Subject Environment To reference this document use: http://resolver.tudelft.nl/uuid:573d954e-f81a-400b-9b04-446ad999bed6 TNO identifier 331693 Source EMS8/ECAC7 Abstracts, Vol. 5, EMS2008-A-00000, 2008 8th Annual Meeting of the EMS / 7th ECAC Document type conference paper Files To receive the publication files, please send an e-mail request to TNO Library.
