Abstract

In recent years, the aspect and behavior inside a bathroom and an appurtenant dressing room have been changing. Also amount of moisture generated in a dwelling has changed by improvements in the thermal insulation quality of a dwelling. In this study, amount of moisture produced in a bathroom and a dressing room was surveyed in order to clarify the basic unit of moisture and to establish the method of moisture measurement. From the result of the survey, it was found that the amount of moisture produced is the sum of adhesive moisture, exhausted moisture by ventilation, and remaining moisture in the atmosphere.
