Application Modern museums go to great lengths to preserve cultural artifacts from degradation. Degradation can be caused by temperature, humidity, light, erosion, and/or chemical substances. However, temperature and humidity are often linked to the other factors and are frequently the most most important for preservation management.

In this narrated interview, Dr. Masahide Inuzuka, Senior Researcher from the National Research Institute for Cultural Properties in Tokyo, Japan, discusses how Cradle scSTREAM CFD software was used to help improve temperature and humidity control in a showcase for large paintings. The analysis addressed two concerns: high temperatures generated by lighting equipment, and large temperature/humidity gradients.

Dr. Inuzuka also discusses how CFD was used to improve preservation of artifacts that are displayed at a temple located near the coast, where relative humidity levels can exceed 90% during certain seasons.
