The Center for Sustainable Building Research, in cooperation with CertiPHIers Cooperative, is offering a new training session: Moisture Risk and Heat Loss Analysis for Wall Assemblies and Junctions
Session description (14 hours over 2 days)
In this 2-day training course, participants will learn in-depth techniques to analyze and evaluate their wall assemblies and details for moisture risk and thermal bridging. Participants will learn to use a variety of current software tools including the hygrothermal simulation WUFI Pro, Glaser, and condensation point calculators. New for the training this year will be in-depth instruction on how to evaluate details and junctions using the 2-dimensional heat flow simulation tool Flixo Energy Plus, which is a markedly improved and more user-friendly version of the program THERM.
First time users/purchasers of Flixo are eligible to register for a 1-yr Flixo Energy Plus license & USB dongle ($444 value) for a reduced price of $190. Session limited to first 20 registered.
Date: October 10th and 11th, 8:30am – 4:30pm
Location: 225 Rapson Hall. 89 Church Street SE, Minneapolis, MN 55455
AIA LUs: pending approval
Intended Audience: Architects, engineers, energy modelers, Passive House consultants, designers and other building professionals who want to build on their skills of moisture risk analysis and thermal bridge modeling.
