The methods so far applied to determine the bound water diffusion coefficient in wood do not provide credible results on this coefficient as well as on the boundary condition. An alternative approach based on the concept of solving the inverse transfer problems was recently applied. Two European species were investigated in the present study. A series of sorption experiments was performed and followed by the numerical identification of the coefficients. Several case studies were carried out for the constant and bound water content dependent diffusion coefficients. The obtained results were validated by comparison to a set of experimental data.

Keywords: computer-aided identification; European beech; mass transfer properties; Scots pine
