In this study, a wood-frame window with an integrated exterior solar shading unit has been investigated. Numerical simulations have been carried out to quantify the moisture distribution and drying-out rate of the construction detail. The simulations have been compared to measured data from an ongoing experimental study. The results indicate that built-in moisture in the wall can lead to high levels of relative humidity (RH) in the detail and that design of this detail should be done considering this. Simulations showed that unfavourable RH-levels can be avoided if it is optimally designed. Preliminary measurements indicate the same trends.
