The moisture storage characteristic is a basic material property of moisture transport modeling. It is measured under equilibrium conditions for adsorption and desorption. One commonly accepted assumption is that this equilibrium data is also applicable for transient conditions. This paper provides evidence on the limitations of this assumptions obtained during transient adsorption and desorption experiments where moisture content and moisture potential was measured simultaneously at different sample positions versus time.
