Hygrothermal modelling is the analysis of heat flow and moisture flow at the same time. It’s an incredibly useful tool for helping to predict the risk of moisture problems in building elements during design stage.

There will be a growing demand for this type of analysis in New Zealand. Take this opportunity to start offering WUFI® 2D modelling of simple and complex building structures.

Course Outcomes

This course provides competency in two dimensional hygrothermal modelling of building structures using WUFI® 2D. The course is suitable for those wanting to provide specialist analysis of complex details such as building connections and thermal bridges. By the end of this course the attendee will be able to:

  • Install and set up WUFI® 2D software
  • Describe the differences between 1D and 2D Calculations
  • Generate model geometry – Example: localised thermal bridge
  • Understand computational parameters
  • Import a DXF File
  • Input moisture and heat sources and sinks
  • Vary source strengths
  • Interpret and present 2D simulation results
