Numerical evaluation of the impact of hemp lime concrete moisture-buffering capacity on the behaviour of relative humidity sensitive ventilation system

Hemp Lime concrete (HLC) is a bio-based material, which knows currently a growing development. HLC is a low embodied energy material. It has an excellent moisture buffer performance and is considered as good indoor climate regulators. Recent field study has confirmed the ability of HLC to maintain hygrothermal conditions at winter and summer comfort levels.
