Research output: Working paper

Abstract

This white paper presents an introduction to the current work being carried out for the upgrading of the Infrastructure Planning Support System to incorporate an holistic approach to the specific impacts of climate change on buildings. The approach builds upon previous work associated with the DUCC effort that emphasized the impact of climate change on roads. The paper illustrates how climate change can affect both wood-based structures as well as masonry-based structures.
Issues including the potential effects on exterior siding, ventilation systems, roofing, and drainage systems as well as structural effects are considered in the expanded analysis.
