Is the building you are designing or retrofitting:
- traditionally built or a protected structure?
- to feature a solid wall or unventilated roof buildup?
- tall or in an area of strong winds?
- damp or considered problematic?
- to be fitted with internal wall insulation?
- to be made very airtight and highly insulated?
- to feature timber in vulnerable positions, like joist ends?
If you are concerned about interstitial condensation, mould or rot then you need to evaluate the risks with WUFI® Pro.
This two-day course provides a practical, hands-on introduction to WUFI® Pro ‘hygrothermal’ numerical simulation. It is the world leading simulation software for understanding the risk of interstitial condensation, mould, rot and freeze-thaw in buildings.
Both days of training include hands-on workshops using the software, and you will get the full version of the WUFI® Pro software with a 6-week temporary licence, as well as access to support on the online WUFI® Forum for that period.
Topics discussed will include the vocabulary and fundamentals of building physics, practical examples with WUFI® Pro, interpretation of results, the compliance context in the UK, and a review of completed case studies. Attendees will learn how to input building fabric assemblies, including orientation and location etc., and run simulations on different configurations, including their own projects.
Who should attend?
The workshop is open to all building professionals, e.g. architects, engineers, surveyors, insulation suppliers, system manufacturers, builders and anyone with a focus on fabric performance. No previous experience with the WUFI® Pro software is required.
