AbstractThe 5 Benchmark exercises specified in the HAMSTAD EU work project (HAMSTAD WP2) were completed using an unmodified version of hygIRC 1-D, version 1.1, available for sale to the public. The objective of the work was to successfully complete the exercises using an ?out of the box? version of hygIRC 1-D. All the benchmarks were successfully completed. The results consistently were within the 0.1% confidence band of acceptance specified or close to the original results of the HAMSTAD project where it was not possible to estimate the confidence limits. Successful completion of these exercises using an unmodified version of hygIRC demonstrates the reliability and robustness of hygIRC 1-D version 1.1 as a hygrothermal simulation tool.
