When dealing with concrete materials it is always a big issue how to deal with the moisture transport. Here, we consider a mathematical model for moisture transport, which is given as a system consisting of the diffusion equation for moisture and of the ordinary differential equation which describes a hysteresis operator. In [3] we already proved the existence of a time global solution of an initial boundary value problem of this system, however, the uniqueness is obtained only for one dimensional domains. The main purpose of this paper is to establish the uniqueness of a solution of our problem in three dimensional domains under the assumption of the smooth boundary and initial data.
