Measurement of the moisture storage capacity using sorption balance and pressure extractors

Janz, Mårten LU and Johannesson, Björn LU (2001) In Journal of Thermal Envelope & Building Science 24(4). p.316-334
Abstract
This paper presents measurements of the moisture storage capacity for several different porous building materials. The storage capacity is measured by a sorption balance in the hygroscopic range and with pressure plate and pressure membrane extractors in the superhygroscopic range. The results are presented both as retention curves and sorption isotherms and indicate, among other things, that some materials have a large hysteresis between absorption and desorption in the superhygroscopic range. This is contrary to what sometimes has been postulated.
