To provide competency in one dimensional hygrothermal modelling of building elements such as walls, roofs and floors using WUFI® Pro.
Participants will become able to set up and run a WUFI® 1D simulation of a building element. They will also become able to interpret and present the results of the simulation.
This course takes a more detailed look at analysis for condensation risk, mould growth risk, corrosion risk, timber rot and air transported water vapour using WUFI® Pro 1D simulation of a building element. By the end of this session you will be able to:
Build models for specific purposes in WUFI Pro 1D
Interpret the results and describe all WUFI Pro 1D input and output parameters and the sensitivity of these
Modify detailed material properties
Adapt material libraries
Model ventilation sources in cavities
Model moisture sources
Model heat sources
Model rainwater leaks into construction systems
Model shading features on roofs
Set up models specifically to analyse condensation risk, mould growth, corrosion, timber rot in sheathing materials and the effects of air transported water vapour
Interpret and present detailed simulation results for specific purposes
