Title: A Critical Review of Hygrothermal Models using in Porous Building Materials
Issue Date: 2008
Abstract: The indoor humidity is an important factor influencing the air quality and energy consumption of buildings as well as durability of building components. Indoor humidity depends on moisture sources, air change, sorption in materials and possible condensation. Since all these phenomena are strongly dependent on each other, numerical predictions of indoor humidity need to be integrated into combined heat and airflow simulation tools. This manuscript presents a state-of-the-art on the development and application of hygrothermal analysis methods to simulate the coupled transport processes of heat and moisture for one or multidimensional cases.KEYWORDS: Hygrothermal modelling, Heat, Air, Moisture
