Therm Course 2020

Want to learn how to model Thermal Bridges? In this course, participants will learn the fundamentals of thermal bridging calculations for wood-framed construction. Common junction details and their modelling conventions will be examined. Modelling techniques will be taught using Therm. Participants will be given the opportunity to perform calculations and have them reviewed in live.


Course Objectives

  1. Gain better understanding of heat loss in buildings due to thermal bridging
  2. Understand what comprises a high quality junction detail
  3. Assess degree of thermal bridging in a junction qualitatively
  4. Learn basic commands in the steady state numerical analysis software THERM
  5. Create 2D thermal models of junction details
  6. Set up the steady state models to output correct results
  7. Calculate heat flows in THERM
  8. Analyse the calculation results to ensure accuracy
  9. Learn and apply the Passive House thermal bridging modelling conventions
  10. Quantify the degree of thermal bridging at junctions
  11. Gain practical experience in the calculation of thermal bridging heat loss
  12. Account for thermal bridging in building energy modelling software
