Hygrothermal Analysis Workshop using WUFI Software

12 November 2019 , 08:30am - 04:00pm
Marches Growth Hub, Telford Innovation Campus, SB Building, Shifnal Road, Priorslee, Telford, TF2 9NT

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.
