Experimental and theoretical study of microclimate in historical church in Wiśniowa

The paper presents a comparison of calculation and measurement results of interior air temperature and humidity in the historical wooden church in Wiśniowa. WUFI®plus software was used for these calculations. A concurrence between calculated and measured parameters allows the presupposition that calculation accuracy is sufficient for the purposes of determining thermal comfort in buildings where the indoor climate is shaped passively. Statistical analysis of the trend changes seems to also be sufficient to assess dynamic impact.
