AbstractThis paper presents the results of experimental and numerical modeling studies examining the overall moisture management capacity of wood-frame walls clad with stucco. The research sought to identify high performance stucco materials having low liquid diffusivity but high water vapor permeability. The research measured and compared the liquid water and water vapor transmission properties of several commercial/conventional stucco materials and some newly formulated compositions.
