Numerical Evaluation of Moisture Buffering Capacity of Different Inner Casing

Enrico Baschieri, Anne Friederike Goy

Abstract: How does the moisture buffering capacity of the inner casing vary, according to the degree of the relative humidity of the room? Can a "rule of thumb" be obtained from a numerical simulation of a case study? A numerical evaluation of a heavyweight building was run in order to estimate the different moisture buffering capacity of two different kinds of plasters. In this study, the environmental data of a room, calculated using a dynamic simulation, was integrated with the hygroscopic properties of the materials obtained from the archives of the software WUFI, in order to simulate the variation of the relative humidity of a room inside a nearly Zero Energy Building with a mechanical ventilation with heat recovery.
