Abstractbuilding materials. Drying of the building materials is mainly associated with the removal of the liquid water with the subsequent injection of the agent forming a hydrophobic barrier. In the paper a mathematical model describing the drying process of a building material was presented. The model accounts for accumulation and transfer of heat and moisture. The transfer processes include both diffusion and convection with the accompanying phase transformations of different forms of moisture. The preliminary numerical simulations using the in-house code based on the model were performed for the 1D domain containing a moist brick and a comparison of the results obtained with the proposed model with another presented in literature was carried out. The good agreement between the both models was found. Subsequently the influence of the orientation of the domain in respect to direction of gravity as well as the convective heat and mass transfer coefficients on the drying process was investigated.
