Because of the growing imperative to control the emissions of greenhouse gases, the Building Regulations have been reviewed again, with an intended implementation date of April 2002. This develops many of the concepts seen in the 1995 edition. Building Regulations 2002 Part L This edition of Part L for implementation in 2002 introduces a number of new requirements in addition to further tightening of insulation standards. Key elements of the proposed standards include: . e. walls, roofs, floors and openings (windows and doors).

Similarly, the thermal resistivity (r) of the material is 1/0:035 ˆ 28:6 m K/W and the thermal resistance (R) of the slab is 1/1:4 (or 28:6  0:025) ˆ 0:71 m2 K/W. Moisture in masonry materials A review at the Building Research Establishment* has shown that the conductivities of all masonry materials bear the same general relationship to their dry densities and follow the same proportional pattern with increasing moisture content. Corrected practical values for moisture content by volume were selected for the Guide Section C3 in consequence, as follows: .

In the case of the discomfort arising from the second situation, there are so many variables that a similar simplification is not possible; in an extreme case, however, a rise in radiant temperature (tri ) of 10±15 K might be anticipated and the provision of some form of shading to the glazing, preferably external, is the correct solution. As to humidity, too high a level will reduce the ability of the body to lose heat by evaporation, with resultant lassitude; too low a level will produce a sensation of coolness on exposed flesh, a parched throat and dry eyes.
