Abstract
The simulation of combined heat, air and moisture (HAM) is important to predict the indoor air quality and thermal comfort. Moreover, inappropriate levels of indoor humidity and temperature can contribute to a high movement of water vapor through the building walls, causing deterioration and reduction of the thermal insulation which leads to higher energy demand. The simulation of the buildings behavior can help to optimize the design of new or existing building, help better control the HVAC sys...
