The theoretical and empirical research on moisture management was interesting. However, as a practicing architect, I would have liked more case study examples of how moisture issues in buildings can be addressed through better design practices.

Great and very relevant information for architect to know.

The three speakers each approached the topic a little differently, allowing us to still be able to take something away from the lessons.
But the Exam though... it in no way reflected the quality of the lectures. Granted at least they weren't a bunch of trick questions, but cheeky was not the way to go here. There was good lecture content that really should have been reinforced in the exam.

The course itself is great but the questions do not accurately reflect the content. The questions are easy and test your ability to turn a few pages in the ASHRAE Handbooks.

great presentation. Could use some more guidelines for avoiding mold growth such as recommended control strategies and equipment selection

This is an excellent presentation with very thorough content regarding moisture problems.

It covers theory, practical measurements, laboratory experiments and ties it all together.

The presenters also go through common sense explanations of the above.
The presentation is a recording from an ASHRAE conference, so expect a very technical presentation.

It will probably go over non-engineer/technical people's heads.

This course was very technical. Would not recommend for any non-engineers.

I gave this course a three star rating. This course would benefit all audiences but is definitely geared to the engineering and design based audience. The topic of dampness and water infiltration is one that doesn't get enough attention here in Florida. The course broke down the topics into three sections: Vapor Sources, Moisture Management-examples and Guidance for Moisture Management. The first section was very analytical and dealt mostly with formula's. The presenter was hard to understand at times due to his accent. There were a few typos within the presentation and it engagement, The second speaker was excellent. He added a great deal of examples with pictures to demonstrate his points. He added comedy to keep the audience engaged and provided summary content to re-enforce what he wanted you to bring away from the topic. The third presenter provided interesting information and gave some history related to the topic (showing that it has been discussed throughout history). The information was good but the format was a challenge. His presentation contained long bullets and didn't really address clear concepts.. He read most of his slides instead of letting them talk for themselves and the information was too long. He did provide some excellent book source information for further reference. The quiz was a big disappointment and didn't provide a good evaluation of learned content. Overall there was good information to be had.

This course is a registered seminar on Ashrae yearly meetings focusing on Chapter 62 of the Fundamental Handbook 2015 about moisture management on buildings. The presentation is divided in three contributions explaining mostly the content of this guide to prevent and to manage moisture,dampness and mold.The first contribution by prof. Hens is the most interesting because in about 30 minutes summarizes the main concepts about moisture and vapor sources.The indoor vapor balance is properly faced with numeric data and formulas giving most attention to the ratio between average vapor
release and average ventilation which represents the best tool to control moisture.Vapor pressure and relative humidity indoors represent important parameters, defining part of overall wellbeing.The other two presentations focuse mainly on describing the frame and structure of Ashrae document on Moisture managemetn how it'composed with the composition of TC .The course represent mainly an introduction to moisture and dampness Chapter on Ashrae Guide.The audio sometimes isn't perfect.
