Abstract
In this master thesis a two-dimensional finite element model describing nonlinear moisture dynamics in paper materials is developed. The aim of the model is to simulate moisture movement in corrugated board boxes due to fluctuating relative humidity.

To evaluate the accuracy of the model a simulation is carried out which is being compared to measurements. For the paper material used in the simulation adsorption and desorption characteristics are experimentally determined.
