Building Science! Why do buildings fail? What is being done to solve the problems? How do we stop IAQ problems before they start? This week on IAQ Radio we have Bob Wendt a research architect specializing in building science investigations of residential buildings. Bob retired from the Oak Ridge National Laboratory’s Buildings Technology Center in January 2008. He is currently an independent consultant and an adjunct professor in the Mechanical Engineering Department of Tuskegee University. Bob’s current activities include research into the impact of mold and contaminants on residential building materials that have been subjected to flooding or other water damage. This work has been in support of the Department of Homeland Security’s Disaster- Resilient Homes project.
