Keywords: two-scale model, coupled heat and moisture transport, first-order homogenisation, processor farming.
This paper describes two scale modelling of coupled heat and moisture transport in masonry. The two-scale approach can be used also in connection with other highly heterogeneous materials. First order homogenisation is used for determination of homogenized material parameters. Macro-scale problem is assigned to the master processor and the meso-scale problems defined on representative volume elements are assigned to slave processors. The method was used for coupled heat and moisture transport in two and three-dimensional problems in various masonry structures.
