WUFI® User (1D)

Intermediate level WUFI® training where you will learn how to set up and run a WUFI® 1D simulation of a building element.

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.

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.

 

Learning outcomes

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
