    Nineteen peer-reviewed papers present the latest laboratory and applied research activities on heat-air-moisture transport through building materials and envelope systems and their applications in the construction industry. This new publication comprises research by renowned international experts from Asia, Europe and North America.

    The first two sections, Material and Measurement and Test Method and Experiment, discuss the challenges and observations associated with the measurement and performance assessment. The last section, Application and Modeling, deals with various application related issues that are linked to heat-air-moisture transport properties of building materials and building envelope systems.
