Current trends in USA building research

Research output: Book/ReportReportProfessional

Abstract

This publication provides an overview of the current trends in building research in the United States. The goal of the publication is to provide VTT personnel and Finnish industry with background information when assessing the opportunities for collaborative international research. The strengths and weaknesses of American R&D are noted, followed by information regarding the changing structure of research. Key building research topics were identified through review of the top engineering and architecture schools, as well as review of industrial building associations and companies. The final section of this publication provides some examples of future research directions, as identified from U.S. funding sources and independent organizations. Many appendices are included as a source of further internet information.
