Effect of air pollutants on cultural heritage buildings has been an emerging issue in the recent years. Conducting field tests to investigate the same has many social, economic and technical constraints. Alternatively, the environmental chambers can easily help us in serving the purpose of testing the construction materials under variable meteorological conditions and identify reasons to take necessary actions. This article focuses mainly on estimation of effects of air pollutants on building materials using ‘Environmental Control Chamber’ and its design...
