Abstract: This paper reports a numerical model developed to simulate the heat transfer coupled with moisture sorption, condensation/evaporation and liquid transport in porous textiles. In the model, liquid water is assumed to move in the composite network of capillaries of the porous textile materials and is propelled by surface tension force from regions of higher liquid content to drier regions. During the capillary action, the evaporation takes place with the influence of the gravity. The analysis includes the capillary action with phase change, vapor diffusion and evaporation according to the specific distributions of the capillaries in the porous textiles. The distributions of the temperature, moisture concentration, and liquid water content in the porous textiles for the different thickness are obtained by means of numerical method. Comparison of the computational results with the experimental data shows satisfactory agreement between the two.
