AbstractA mathematical model based on empiricial expressions for heat and moisture fluxes is presented to describe simultaneous heat and moisture transport throught glass fibre insulation. A finite difference method is subsequently used to analyse the transport processes. Some of the predictions from the analysis are compared with laboratory measurements.
