Hygrothermal Risk Assessment for Building Performance

Hygrothermal Risk Assessment for Building Performance

The Hygrothermal Risk Assessment for Building Performance module enables learners to explore and critique the applied building physics and conventions of hygrothermal calculation and risk evaluation, and their use in creating high quality building fabric performance specifications.

It engages the learner in the analysis and evaluation of the relevant standards and validated software used in the steady state calculation of hygrothermal risk for a limited group of construction components, and the transient numerical simulation of hygrothermal risk for all construction components.

It enables the learner to differentiate and appraise underlying building physics principles and calculation conventions to specify building construction assemblies which satisfy hygrothermal performance requirements and to conclude when specialist guidance is needed.
