Simulation of drying of wood-frame walls submitted to water infiltration

Constance Thivierge, Dominique Derome, Jan Carmeliet & Constance Thivierge
This paper presents hygrothermal modeling results simulating the drying performance of different wood frame wall configurations submitted to water infiltration in the stud cavity. As rain can be the most important potential source of moisture in wall assemblies, an experimental investigation was previously undertaken at Concordia University to compare the wetting and drying potential of 15 walls subjected to water insertion in the stud cavity within a large Environmental Chamber. The experiment considered three different...
