The aim of this review paper is to examine the most recent available studies dealing with theoretical, numerical and experimental aspects related to modelling of heat and mass transfer through wooden buildings. First, the main thermophysical, mechanical and hygrometric properties of wood are discussed. Then, the basic governing equations of heat and mass transfer phenomena are presented. A detailed description of the physical problem is also shown. After providing the main results from a comprehensive literature review, the authors propose future possibilities of scientific research studies for a better understanding of the complexity of thermomechanical and optimal designing aspects in wood-based construction.
