    Abstract

    Two empirical Coefficients are identified to represent water vapor transport through fibrous insulation, in the presence of a thermal gradient. These coefficients are determined from heat flow meter measurements.

    Keywords:

    fibrous insulation, thermal gradient, vapor transport, heat flux, transport characteristics, water vapor transmission, testing
