Abstract
The use of hygrothermal calculation tools for dimensional purposes in the design phase is common. However, used tools are usually not blindly verified in real, on-site conditions.

This paper present a method for verification of hygrothermal calculation tools for real-life, situations. In the method calculations become carried out before the measurement results are known, i.e. by blind calculations, which afterwards are compared with measurements.

The main conclusion is that blind validations are reliable since intentional or unintentional adjustments of calculated results, to obtain better correlations to the measured values, are impossible. Other positive effect is that information about how the user perceives the tool... (More)

The main conclusion is that blind validations are reliable since intentional or unintentional adjustments of calculated results, to obtain better correlations to the measured values, are impossible. Other positive effect is that information about how the user perceives the tool could be found since the blind calculations are similar to the designer situation in daily work. (Less)
