Summary Th NorthernSTAR Building America Partnership held an expert meeting on Foundations - Research Results on November 15, 2011 at the University Hotel Minneapolis on the campus of the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis. Featured speakers included Pat Huelman of the University of Minnesota, Louise Goldberg of the University of Minnesota, Kohta Ueno of Building Science Corporation (BSC), and Jeff Christian of Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL). Audience participation was actively encouraged during each presentation to uncover needs and promote dialog among researchers and industry professionals. Key results were: Greater understanding of the role of moisture transport through foundation and insulation materials and its potential impact on building durability; Greater understanding of the role of foundation type in the process of selecting an insulation system for energy performance and building durability; Need for research to quantify the risks associated with insulation processes to better enable users to weigh costs and benefits against the existing conditions of a home; Need for improved performance modeling capabilities that address variations in foundation types and soil conditions.
