Outdoor Exposure in Four Climate Zones (Maritime, Arid, Alpine, Moderate)
In order to determine materials durability under real weather conditions in extreme climates, we operate outdoor test sites in different climates. Here we are able to quantify the climatic factors that play a critical role in aging processes and examine their effects.
The measured data is supplemented by global climate data that we prepare with the help of geographic information systems (GIS). Using suitable simulation models, we are able to simulate exposure in potential locations from these macroclimatic conditions.
