Wells Educates: Thermal Testing and Performance in Precast Wall Systems Webinar
September 2, 2020 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
This presentation reviews testing options for determining the thermal properties and performance of materials and assemblies, include a review of recent thermal test results and how they apply to current energy codes. Participants will learn about the benefits of thermal mass (thermal inertia) and how these benefits are recognized in national energy codes. This presentation will provide an overview of prescriptive and performance paths of these energy codes. Additionally, the reduction of the R-value of concrete panels with metal thermal bridges that pass through the insulation will be explained. Learn more about thermal testing and performance.
Attendees will learn:
- Review of thermal terminology
- Review of ways to determine thermal performance
- Hot Box Testing and Results
- WUFI Model
- Therm Model
- Prescriptive vs Performance path
