Carpentry - Insulation and Ventilation
Terms in this set (34)
A fiberboard ceiling tile whose surface consists of small holes and / or fissures that act as sound traps.
When water, in vapor form, changes to a liquid due to cooling of the air; the resulting drops of water that accumulate on the cool surface.
The transfer of heat by contact.
Fluid (air) movement caused by difference in warm and cool fluid (air) densities; denser cool air is pulled downward by gravity displacing the less dense warm air.
Temperature at which moisture in the air condenses into drops.
A building constructed so that building materials can dry easily after exposure to severe weather.
That part of a roof that extends beyond the sidewall.
A state of balance; heat energy is thought to move from warmer materials into cooler ones in an attempt to reach this state.
Equilibrium moisture content
The point at which the moisture content of wood is equal to the moisture content of the surrounding air.
A type of rigid foam plastic insulation that will absorb moisture if it comes in contact with water; also called white bead board.
A type of rigid foam plastic insulation with a closed-cell structure that will not absorb water.
A type of insulation manufactured in blanket or bat form.
A urethane foam insulation produced by mixing two chemicals that are injected into place to expand on contact with surfaces.
Ice that forms on an overhang, causing water buildup behind it to back up under roofing material.
Noise caused by the vibration of an impact, such as dropped objects or footsteps on a floor.
Impact Noise Rating (INR)
A rating that shows the resistance of various types of floor-ceiling construction to impact noises.
Double- or triple-glazed windows; improved insulated glass design uses argon gas between two panes of glass.
Material used to restrict the passage of heat or sound.
A type of insulation usually composed of material in bulk form and supplied in bags or bales.
A coating on the inner glass surface of a window that allows ultraviolet rays from the sun to pass but reflects the inside infrared (radiant) rays back into the building.
A type of rigid foam insulation made with a facing of foil or building paper.
A general word referring to electromagnetic radiation, which includes microwaves, radio waves, infrared, visible light, ultraviolet light, X rays, and cosmic rays.
A number given to a material to indicate its resistance to the passage of heat.
The percentage to moisture suspended in air compared to the maximum amount it could hold at that temperature.
Sound deadening insulating board
A sound resistance system using a gypsum board outer covering and resilient steel channels placed at right angles to the studs to isolate the gypsum board from the stud.
Sound Transmission Class (STC)
A rating given to a building section, such as a wall, that measures the resistance to the passage of sound.
A type of foam insulation in an aerosol can that is sprayed into gaps to expand and create an airtight seal.
An additional sash placed on the outside of a window to create a dead air space to prevent the loss of heat from the interior in cold weather.
A secondary window attached over the usual window to protect against the wind and cold.
The part of a building that creates the boundary between conditioned and unconditioned air.
Normally invisible, a cool gaseous state of water.
Plastic sheet used to prevent moisture from penetrating the building surface.
A material used to prevent the passage of vapor; also called a vapor barrier.
Narrow strips of thin metal or other material applied to windows and doors to prevent the infiltration of air and moisture.
