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
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
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.
