Articles about absorption on Designing Buildings Wiki include:
NB Technical paper 35: Moisture measurement in the historic environment, published by Historic Environment Scotland in 2021, defines absorption as: ‘A process in which a solid holds a gas or liquid within its open volume.’
Anticipate, react, recover; Resilient infrastructure systems, published by the National Infrastructure Commission in May 2020, defines absorb as: ‘The actions that, accepting there will be or has been an impact on infrastructure services, aim to lessen that impact, such as building a water transfer network to prepare for future droughts.’
