Ismail, Muhamad Iskandar (2016) Assessment on dampness growth in UiTM Perak Building / Muhamad Iskandar Ismail. [Student Project] (Unpublished)


Malaysia is a nation that is encounters a tropical rainforest climate. Hot weather and rain are the two components that could end the beauty of the building and other negative impressions. The buildings who are located with nearest of water sources cause a dampness growth more seriously. It is one of factors of failure of building and damage that must be taken seriously to be maintenance. The sources and sign of dampness growth need to be analysed early before it become more serious problems to building and users. The purpose of this study is to aim an assessment on dampness growth in UITM Perak. The selection spot of dampness divided into three places at the case study for getting a sign of dampness growth. After a study through the observation with uses instruments investigation like moisture meter and thermo hygro- meter, the sign of dampness growth can be detected. The dampness influence by humidity of the material caused by exposed to high humidity
atmosphere and higher in humidity of material that influence the sign of dampness. The higher of humidity content, the higher of dampness growth. Therefore, the maintenance staff and user of the building must take an early action and users must do complaint rapid and efficiency to the maintenance staff to avoid the dampness growth become serious.
