Tampere University of Technology and Technical Research Centre of Finland started co-operation project “a Mathematical modelling of moisture behaviour and mould growth in building envelopes” in 2005. Eight different construction materials will be studied in laboratory and in field conditions. The experiments consist of the tests for the materials and for the exterior wall structures. Mould growth has been checked regularly. This paper deals with the present results of the experiments. The research project will be ended by August 31st, 2008.
