Joseph Little and Calina Ferraro of Building Life Consultancy, and Manfred Kehrer of the Fraunhofer Institute of Building Physics will deliver a two day workshop on Wufi Pro hygrothermal simulation software in Dublin on 15 and 16 September.

This workshop will teach attendees to use Fraunhofer’s Wufi Pro software for simulating heat and moisture transfer through building fabric for the purpose of assessing risk and preventing interstitial condensation. The focus of the workshop will be on the practical application of the software.

Joseph Little and Calina Ferraro of Building Life Consultancy, and Manfred Kehrer of the Fraunhofer Institute of Building Physics will deliver a two day workshop on Wufi Pro hygrothermal simulation software in Dublin on 15 and 16 September.

This workshop will teach attendees to use Fraunhofer’s Wufi Pro software for simulating heat and moisture transfer through building fabric for the purpose of assessing risk and preventing interstitial condensation. The focus of the workshop will be on the practical application of the software.

Topics discussed will include fundamentals of building physics, practical examples with Wufi Pro, interpretation of results, the market context for Wufi, and a review of completed case studies. Attendees will learn how to input a wall or roof, its orientation and location, and run simulations on different configurations. There will also be an opportunity for attendees to work on their own problem build-ups.

The workshop is intended for architects, engineers, insulation suppliers, system manufacturers, builders, and anyone with a focus on interstitial condensation, healthy buildings, conservation and fabric performance. No previous experience with the Wufi Pro software is required.

Meanwhile, Building Life Consultancy is also offering a course in thermal bridge assessment in Dublin on 22 and 23 August, and again on 29 and 30 September.  The course will train participants to perform thermal bridge calculations and surface condensation risk assessments to meet the latest Irish, British and European (EN ISO) Standards. It will also give an insight into other approaches to assessing thermal bridges.

The course will offer an "extensive coverage of all scenarios for 2D thermal bridge calculation (linear thermal transmittance), with an introduction to 3D heat transfer (point thermal transmittance)".

Sole traders and companies registered in the Republic of Ireland may be able to avail of reduced fees for the courses — contact Building Life Consultancy for further details.
