A Brief Survey on the Practical Applications of Sebera Equation for Predicting Permanence Index During Transfer of Cultural Heritage to Distinct Environmental Conditions

Authors(1) :-Antonio Carlos Augusto da Costa

This work provides information about the use of Sebera Equation in the calculation of permanence index of paper documents based on simulations that include relative humidity and temperature changes, being an useful tool to predict the long-term life of paper documents in libraries, museums and archives.
