Anisotropic Hygroscopic Porous Medium

Application ID: 113941

This example compares moisture transport within two types of anisotropic porous medium. The first component defines a layered structure. The structure alternates between layers with high and low moisture diffusivity. So the moisture spreads more easily along the layers than transversely. The second component has a single domain with an effective, anisotropic moisture diffusivity. The relative humidity distribution for the two cases are then compared.

This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
