Abstract: This work describes an iterative technique for the definition of condensation across two-dimensional elements via the boundary element method (BEM). Initially, the BEM is used to calculate the steady-state conduction of heat and vapour diffusion, discretizing only the boundary materials' discontinuities. Then, a small sub-domain is defined, where condensation develops; that is, where the vapour pressure exceeds the vapour saturation pressure. Using the Glaser approach, the vapour pressure is equalised to the vapour saturation pressure, and then the vapour equilibrium is redefined by means of the BEM solution. This process is repeated until all sub-domains where vapour pressure exceeds vapour saturation pressure are eliminated.
