Hygrothermal Analysis Workshop using WUFI Software

12th November, 2019   8:30am to 4:00pm

Marches Growth Hub, Priorslee, Telford

The Built Environment Climate Change Innovation (BECCI) project is delighted to announce that we are organising a workshop  using WUFI Plus hygrothermal analysis software for thermal performance and the effect of moisture in buildings. 

This workshop is suited for practitioners who are currently designing, building or retrofitting; and are concerned about:

  • Heat loss through fabric

  • Energy consumption

  • Moisture effect in new vs old buildings

  • How to avoid interstitial condensation

  • Main causes of heat loss through fabric

WUFI® Plus software allows the simulation of the hourly hygrothermal behaviour of multiple-layered wall and roof systems. It predicts how heat and moisture transfer through the building fabric and what effects can occur when the build-up is exposed to external and internal climate conditions.

The workshop covers:

  • Principles of hygrothermal analysis

  • Moisture and heat transfer through fabric

  • Best practices and how to prevent issues in fabric

 

Business benefits:

  • Networking with local architects, specifiers, installers and suppliers

  • Practical experience using WUFI software 

  • Take away a completed software model of a building you have worked on

  • Report with a summary of your design and costings

 

Who should attend?

The workshop is open to all building professionals, e.g. architects, engineers, surveyors, insulation suppliers, system manufacturers and builders.
