AbstractIn 1994 the National Research Council's Institute for Research in Construction (IRC) initiated a comprehensive research project to develop a method that would help product manufacturers and building designers to evaluate the ability of building elements and assemblies to effectively manage external moisture in any geographic location in North America. This article describes briefly the research tasks and types of results obtained in this project.
