Abstract: This paper reports on a transient model of coupled heat and moisture transfer through fibrous insulation, which for the first time takes into account of evaporation and mobile condensates. The model successfully explained the experimental observations of Farnworth [5], and the numerical results of the model were found to be in good agreement with the experimental results of a drying test. Based on this model, numerical simulation was carried out to better understand the effect of several material and environmental parameters on the heat and moisture transfer. It was found that the initial water content and thickness of the fibrous insulation together with the environmental temperature are the three most important factors influencing the heat flux.
