There is a strong demand for accurate moisture modeling since moisture poses a risk for both the constructions and the indoor climate. This investigation has special focus on moisture modeling. The paper describes a new model based on a CFD tool enhanced to include both detailed modeling of airflows in rooms and heat and moisture transfer in walls by applying them as fluid walls. In a 3D configuration it is investigated what the impacts are of different boundary conditions and how this influences microclimates in rooms. The studied microclimate is a piece of furniture placed near a cold exterior wall.
