The distribution of the humidity in a dwelling unit is the key factor determining the condensationrisk and the mold growth, as well as the dryness problem. As the first stage of the research project aiming at the understanding and the solutions of the above problems, the experiment on humidity distribution in multiple rooms with the simulated occupancy was carried out in a full-scale research house. The effects on the humidity distribution of the ventilation, etc. are described and compared with the numerical predictions.
