AbstractKnowledge of the expected long-term performance of building envelopes subjected to simultaneous heat and moisture transport is critical during the design stage. In the past thirty years researchers have concentrated their efforts in extensive laboratory experiments. These experiments have been expensive as well as time consuming to conduct due to the slow moisture transport phenomena. This paper critically investigates a set of experimental results generated from laboratory.
