Hygrothermal Analysis Workshop using WUFI Software


  • When? 12 November 2019 , 08:30am - 04:00pm
  • Where? 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.
