Materials are selected from a material database or specified by providing thermal and hygric properties so that assemblies can be built from one or more layers of different materials.
Although the ventilation supply is kept constant, building fabric hygric inertia induces some slope in the vapor pressure excess from winter to summer while related time lag results in a little higher excess in autumn than in springtime.
f = a multiplier accounting for the building fabric hygric inertia
No additional thermal storage capacity has been assigned to the zones (walls are extra accounted for), but hygric storage capacity is taken into consideration.
In this phase it must be particularly important to balance the hygric status through water ingestions.
Higher CP values are generally associated with organisms living in hygric environments whereas lower rates are associated with organisms living in more xeric conditions (Appel and Tanley, 1999).
