Title: Laboratory testing for daily hygroscopic inertia assessment
Issue Date: 2008
Abstract: This article describes an extensive experimental campaign aiming at the characterization of the moisture buffering capacity of interior finishing system and the assessment of the hygroscopic inertia of a room. The MBV - Moisture Buffer Value is evaluated for gypsum based products finished with different coatings. The assessment of hygroscopic inertia at room level is implemented using a flux chamber designed specifically for this experiment. A daily hygroscopic inertia index, Ih,d, is defined using MBV as a basis for the assessment of materials contribution to the buffering capacity of a room. The correlation between that index and peak dampening is proved using the presented experimental results.
