Mathematical model for describing simultaneous heat and moisture transfer in the porous soil with a dry surface layer was developed by using the volume-averaging method. Numerical simulation was conducted to investigate water evaporation, transient distributions of temperature and moisture in the porous soil at environmental conditions, which might be Cited by: Heat and Mass Transfer in Soil 2 NOMENCLATURE φ φ aP,aF coefficients in the discretized equation for φ φ bP source term in the discretized equation for φ C volumetric heat capacity (J/m 3.K) CP specific heat capacity (J/kg.K) Cφ coefficient in general conservation equation CTv,CTψ vapor and total moisture thermal capacitance terms (K-1) CψT,CTT matric (J/mFile Size: KB. For the investigation both one- and two-dimensional simulations of the heat and moisture transfer in soil are performed. The typical one-dimensional calculation object used is a 15 m deep soil column. The typical two-dimensional calculation object is an insulated basement of m deep by 10 m wide, with a thermal transmittance U f of W/m 2 K for the floor and by: Experimental treatments included a factorial combination of soil moisture (∼5, 15, 30, and 45% v/v) and soil textural (sandy loam, sandy loam–pumice, loam, clay loam) gradients, with a surface fuel load comprised of a dense layer of masticated wood. Soil moisture had a strong influence on heat transfer.

In addition, the moisture dependence of the thermal properties is assessed. Find details about the moisture transport equation in building materials in the Heat Transfer Module User’s Guide..

  After a spacious research and consideration on various approaches of thermal coupled formulations in porous media, a new mathematical form of coupled heat, moisture, and air transfer in unsaturated soil is proposed upon taking the effect of combined volumetric moisture content and temperature gradients and air pressure changes. In this matter, in the Cited by: Samples of pumice, conventional coarse aggregate and conventional fine aggregate were taken in order to perform the granulometry, dry density, water absorption, degradation, moisture . Simulations of heat and moisture transfer conducted with a one-dimensional model are also presented for the experiments. The calculations were successful in accurately predicting surface temperatures for both wet and dry sand, making it possible to predict surface temperatures under different by: 5.
