Abstract

A model of moisture and heat transport was used to study the performance of storage enclosures. This paper examines several modelling approaches and presents the benefits and drawbacks of a ‘simple’ model which requires few input parameters. As a result, users do not need to measure many material properties, but some quality of the predictions is lost. The model is used to explore the balance of moisture exchange through ventilation holes and diffusion, the presence of buffering material inside enclosures and the effect of wall thickness. The predictions correspond well to experimental data measured in storage enclosures and a historic building. However, in order to bring modelling to the point where it can be used to engineer better enclosures, further research is needed. Experimental validation needs to be extensive and the limits of applicability of the model need to be clearly identified.
