Abstract

The climate conditions within a building can not be studied without taking into account their interaction with the surrounding walls. Therefore, heat and mass transfer through the wall should be analysed first. The aim of the present work is to analyse the behaviour of a wall in terms of moisture content, relative humidity and temperature and their changes in space and time. A composite porous wall consisting of several layers made of different materials is analysed while exposed to air with a numerical model which takes into the account coupled heat and mass transfer through the porous material. Sensitivity analysis is perform
