Abstract

IJBPA Guest editorial 37,4 For it is the chief requisite for life, for happiness, and for everyday use. (Pollio et al., 1914, p. 226, Book VIII) In the first century BC, Vitruvius was clear on the role of the building’s roof to protect the walls and foundations from rainwater (Pollio et al., 1914, p. 177, Book VI, Chapter 3) and the removal of the water by the use of drains (Pollio et al., 1914, p. 156, Book V, Chapter 9). Recognized as an issue since antiquity, there has been a great deal of fragmented research on building moisture, but the topic still represents a problem area in too many buildings. Research has tended to focus on local problems, and as a result the lessons and associated knowledge are either not relevant, or more dangerously used inappropriately, for other locations or climates. This special issue brings together a wide range of international research into moisture in buildings. There are six papers from around the globe, including Europe, North America and Oceania. Three papers explore moisture issues in roof spaces, two deal with moisture in the floor and sub-floor and one paper is about moisture in walls. The results and models
