Based on measurements of mould in 17 attics in the north of Sweden, 3 were chosen as a tentative validation of the MRD-model (Mould Resistance Design) for long periods of time (1961-2012). Comparing the measurements and the results from the simulations showed great differences regarding the mould growth depending on the simplifications used in the model. How the leakage was simulated and where the moisture from the leakage was placed in the construction were the most important factors. The study could not validate the MRD model as such, but it was clear that the simulations with relatively small adjustments could give realistic data
