The following reports are excerpts from the 2009 Building Science Corporation Industry Team Building America Annual Report. These summaries are for the following advanced system research projects: high R-value enclosures, ventilation effectiveness advanced system research, and dehumidification performance advanced system research. The following report discusses theoretical work done to explore the influence of air infiltration/ exfiltration on thermal performance, and a literature survey of predictions and measurements of below-grade heat loss through slabs and basement walls, as well as recommends appropriate R-value for these components in cold climates.
