Fraunhofer-Institut für Bauphysik
Applying the principles of building physics forms the foundation of the research and development work conducted by the Fraunhofer Institute for Building Physics IBP. In addition to conventional building physics topics such as acoustics, energy efficiency, indoor climate, hygiene & sensor technology, hygrothermics and recycling building materials, the institute also carries out research on a wide range of projects with a high social relevance. Examples include the integrated design of schools and workspaces, improving the environmental friendliness of flying, or exploring ways and means to explore the energy potential of entire cities. Further focal points are the analysis of products, processes and services from an ecological, economic, social and technical point of view and assessing them from a holistic perspective.
Efficient laboratories and testing facilities, as well as the largest known open-air test site at our branch in Holzkirchen, allow us to conduct complex building physics tests. Modern laboratory measurement equipment and calculation methods optimize building products for practical use. We perform analyses in model rooms, on the test field and on the finished object in order to assess the properties of components and complete systems with regard to building physics, both for new buildings and for renovation projects.
