AbstractThe focus of this study was to examine the reliability of models that are available in the open literature for simulating the interior moisture conditions, comparing the predicted interior relative humidity to measured data. Four models, for predicting the indoor relative humidity in houses were tested against measured relative humidity data for 25 houses.The models considered were primarily developed as design tools.
