The Building Research Institutes of Denmark, Iceland,
Norway and Sweden, the Technical Research Centre of
Finland, the Swedish National Testing Institute and the
Norwegian Institute for Air Research have started a
research programme within the field of dyeing, durability
and service life of building materials and components.
The main objects of the programme are:
research on dyeing and service life of materials and
components, methods for field surveys testing the ageing
and service life, prediction of durability and service
life inspection and reparation of building failures.
The work is financed nationally and supported by the
Nordic Council of Ministers. The programme falls today
under the auspices of Nordic Building Research
Cooperation Group. The program consists of four projects.
The preparatory study on durability and service life of
building materials and products is one of them and it has
been performed in collaboration with interested parties.
Many persons from different research institutes have
participated in the work by providing written
contributions, by collecting, analysing or discussing
material relevant for the study.
The results of the project will be published in two
volumes: the main report in VTT, Research Notes 96 and
the Appendix in VTT, Research Notes 97.
It has to be pointed out that the ultimate responsibility
for the contents and formulations lies upon the
undersigned who has written the main part of the report
and edited all contributions.
