Building physics in the course of time
Editorial from Bauphysik 2/2011
At the end of the 1960s even civil engineers and experts were unfamiliar with the term building physics. Since then this discipline provides an essential contribution to the design, usage and changes in usage as well as the reconstruction and demolition of buildings.
As the scientific mouthpiece of this discipline, the journal BAUPHYSIK has itself contributed significantly since its inception in 1978/79 and has done so in a verfiable and quantifiable manner. With the journal's accreditation by the Institute for Scientific Information it has been confirmed that it satisfies the Basic Standards as central criteria for a scientific publication.
