WUFI® Basics (1D)

Entry level WUFI® training where you will learn what hygrothermal modelling and WUFI® software is capable of with hands on practice.

Description

Sign up for any WUFI® training course before 1 October 2019 and be in to win a Building Physics Forum 2019 ticket valued at $895.

This is an introduction to the science of coupled heat and moisture analysis and material properties. You will learn what hygrothermal modelling and WUFI® software is capable of, get hands on training and become confident in how to carry out a hygrothermal analysis and how to effectively interpret the results.

 

Learning outcomes

This course aims to give you hands-on experience to generate a WUFI® 1D simulation of a building element. The ultimate purpose is to be able to interpret and present the results of a simulation. By the end of the course you will be able to:

  • Install and set up WUFI® Pro software
  • Navigate the software and understand the features
  • Set up a project
  • Access climate files
  • Understand the compatibility with weather synthesis programs
  • Use product material libraries
  • Define and edit basic vapour permeability properties for membranes
  • Run simulations
  • Understand the concepts behind initial conditions, moisture and heat sources and sinks
  • Model basic ideal systems
  • Interpret and present simulation results
