The platform is a two-level residential building with a cellular concrete structure, built in the 1960s and insulated from the outside in July 2011. During this operation, a set of temperature sensors was installed inside the walls.. The instrumentation was completed by a weather station of the roof of the building and by themperature sensors placed inside the building. The instrumentation delivers data continuously with a 15-second time. Spot observations (from a few hours to a month) by thermal imaging camera complete these observations. The building is inhabited. The platform is located in Villemomble (93). It is used jointly by the researchers of the OPTIMISTHEtheme of CERTES and THEMACS Engineering company.
The aim is to have useful experimental data for:
the development of in-situ control methods for building insulation and long-term monitoring of its evolution;
testing methods of correcting thermal images of building facades;
testing heat transfer models, and calculating energy balances on a building.
Sensors set and associated instrumentation: weather station (P, T, HR, wind speed and direction, rainfall, solar irradiation on roof and facade surfaces), temperature sensors (indoor, outdoor, exterior walls surfaces and at the interface between structure wall and insulating materaial, HFMs), thermal imaging cameras, albedometer.
