ABSTRACT

Wood based panels are mostly used in the building industry. Using these panels in details of flat roofs is one from their advantages. Problem occurs in the case of increased humidity mainly by leakage or water vapor condensation in the construction which causes degradation of panels. That causes also changes in basic characteristics and reduces the bearing capacity. This work contains utilization of the most used wooden panels. In thesis author evaluates influence of humidity in flat roofs details on creation of mould and influence of increased humidity into underlay. Tests were making with the aim of assess the suitability of different OSB panels application in details flat roofs. Verification of the properties of wood-based panels was done using experimental measurements. The proposed measurement consisted of simulating the natural environment, which may occur in the structure. As test specimens were created by parts of compositions of flat roofs. Compositions were created in different versions with different types of thermo insulation and OSB/3 and OSB/4.
