Description: Performance of Bio-based Building Materials provides guidance on the use of bio-based building materials (BBBM) with respect to their performance. The book focuses on BBBM currently present on the European market. The state-of-the-art is presented regarding material properties, recommended uses, performance expectancies, testing methodology, and related standards. Chapters cover both ‘old and traditional’ BBBM since quite a few of them are experiencing a comeback on the market. Promising developments that could become commercial in the near future are presented as well. The book will be a valuable reference resource for those working in the bio-based materials research community, architects and agencies dealing with sustainable construction, and graduate students in civil engineering.
Table of Content: Preface 1 Introduction This book shall provide guidance on the use of bio based building materials (BBBM) with respect to their performance. The book is focusing on BBBM currently present on the European market. The state of the art is presented regarding material properties, recommended uses, performance expectancies, testing methodology and related standards. Lacks of information and knowledge will be identified. Future research needs are highlighted. Promising developments that could become commercial in the near future are presented as well. This does not exclude the majority of ‘old and traditional’ BBBM since quite some of them are experiencing a comeback or have never disappeared from the market. 1.1 Bio-based building materials and their role in the modern building sector 1.2 Traditional use and regional differences 1.3 Current issues and challenges related to performance of bio-based building materials 2 Wood-based bio-based building materials 2.1 Wood based products This section to cover hardwood and softwood and regional differences depending on local supply How international supplies have changed market demand and building techniques Each sub-chapter should contain: General description Notable properties (related to performance) Applications (historical and –more important- recent examples) 2.1.1 Solid wood 2.1.2 Glulam and cross laminated timber 2.1.3 Panels 2.1.4 Composites 2.2 Wood Derivatives 2.2.1 Bark 2.2.2 Cork 2.2.3 Fibers 2.2.4 Cellulose 2.2.5 Pulp and paper 3 Non-wood-based bio-based building materials 3.1 Introduction 3.2 Flax 3.3 Hemp 3.4 Straw 3.5 Bamboo and Rattan 3.6 Reed 3.7 Palm 4 Non-conventional and emerging bio-based building materials 4.1 Seaweed 4.2 Wool 4.3 Peat 4.4 Grass 4.5 Other To be determined as the review progresses, based on innovative work within the COST Action and surveying international literature 4.6 Hybrid materials Review the development of combination of range of bio-based maeterials as well as bio-based materials in combination with non-biobased construction materials (e.g. hempcrete, composite windows) 5 Protection of bio-based materials The aim of this chapter is to provide an overview of methods available to enhance the properties of bio-based materials. This will only provide a general introduction, since there are a wide range of existing texts on these subjects, and readers will be directed towards these. 5.1 Hazards and potential degrading agents 5.2 Material protection 5.2.1 Preservation techniques 5.2.2 Modification methods 5.2.3 Encapsulation methods 5.3 Building design 5.4 Building maintenance 6 Performance of the bio-based material Clear description of how ‚performance‘ can be defined and understood. This might be done by considering different viewpoints, e.g. of architects, engineers, end users, academics, biologists, market researcher, etc. 6.1 Function 6.2 Durability 6.3 Moisture 6.4 Aesthetics 6.5 Energy efficiency 6.6 Resistance to fire Written by an invited guest author from COST FP 1404 6.7 Environmental 6.8 Other 7 Performance requirements as part of the building envelope 7.1 Building physics 7.2 Energy efficiency 7.3 Concept of near zero energy and passive houses 7.4 Impact of in-use conditions How do people living inside and using the building or constructed asset influence its performance? Effect of ventilation habits, cleaning, maintenance, wear, etc. 7.5 Indoor air quality Effects of VOC emissions, indoor and outdoor pollutions 8 Performance testing It is necessary to consider both lab and field tests given the necessity to meet lab testing conditions for traditional standardisation methods used with bio-based materials, and long-term realistic testing according to field trials (which expose materials to real-time hazards, e.g. long term durability studies of CCA treated wood have been running for more than 50 years, so providing wealth of information and helping in comparing/extrapolating lab test results with expected field trials and hence in-use performance) 8.1 Laboratory testing 8.1.1 Bacteria, mould and decay fungi 8.1.2 Insects 8.1.3 Marine borers 8.1.4 Weathering and leaching 8.1.5 Moisture dynamics 8.1.6 Energy performance 8.1.7 Building physics (e.g. moisture transport, thermal conductivity 8.2 Field tests 8.2.1 Bacteria, mould and decay fungi 8.2.2 Insects 8.2.3 Marine borers 8.2.4 Weathering and leaching 8.2.5 Moisture dynamics 8.3 Monitoring of structures and in-service testing 9 Performance of building envelopes 9.1 Building physics 9.2 Energy efficiency 9.3 Concept of near zero energy and passive houses 9.4 Impact of in-use conditions How do people living inside and using the building or constructed asset influence its performance? Effect of ventilation habits, cleaning, maintenance, wear, etc. 9.5 Indoor air quality Effects of VOC emissions, indoor and outdoor pollutions 10 Modelling 10.1 Introduction How modelling can be used as a tool to link testing results to expected service performance and overall service life 10.2 Mould development 10.3 Hygrothermal models 10.4 Decay models 10.5 Thermal and energy efficiency models 10.6 Mechanical performance models 10.7 Others 11 Bio-based building materials meeting current and future requirements 11.1 Introduction Overview of the demands for improved building performance, and how bio-based materials can help meet these demands now and in the forseeable future. 11.2 Mitigation of climate change and building materials 11.2.1 Environmental assessment of building materials from processing, use and end of life phase 11.2.2 Environmental assessment of buildings 11.2.3 Assessing and managing the risk of climate changes 11.2.4 Health co-benefits of climate change mitigation measures 11.3 Innovative building materials for sustainable growth 11.3.1 Environmental profiles and Eco-labels 11.3.2 Life cycle costing 11.3.3 Circular economy, bio-economy, and low-carbon society 12.4 Future requirements 12 Evaluation and standardisation 12.1 Current situation in Europe Structured according to ‚performance types as in section 6-5 12.2 Current situation internationally Structured according to ‚performance types as in section 6-5 12.3 Overview of relevant standards Structured according to ‚performance types as in section 6-5 12.4 Recent developments 13 Current groups and evaluation committees for bio-based building materials 14 Glossary of terms
