Join us during the A’23 panel presentation, “Research Scientists’ Perspectives on Climate Impacts for Building Environment & Materials,” on June 9, 2023 from 2:00 – 3:30 p.m. PT.
How are building materials affected by increasing temperatures, extreme water events, increasing humidity levels, and wildland-urban interface fires? Scientists from the Chemical Insights Research Institute will discuss the effects of changing environmental conditions on the release of chemicals, unexpected chemical transformations, microbiological growth, and fire emissions and residues. Presenters will discuss how this research may translate into tools for the building community, offering a glimpse into future design of healthy and durable materials and buildings.
