Hygric properties of porous building materials (IV) Semi-permeable membrane and psychrometer methods for measuring moisture storage curves

April 2019 - Posted: 11/8/2019


Two novel methods for measuring the moisture storage curves are proposed. They feature in wide applicable range, low cost, simple handling and efficiency. Both adsorption and desorption in the over-hygroscopic range can be measured. Tests on 3 representative porous building materials are performed and validated.
