New Energy Code
Wednesday, Oct. 13, 2021, 11 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. EDT
Learn more about the different approaches you may take to assess the thermal performance of your products, assemblies and systems. Gain an understanding of the advantages and limits of various 2D and 3D simulation tools.
Thermography and X-ray
Wednesday, Nov. 17, 2021, 11 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. EDT
Thermography is the noninvasive tool of choice to guide our research during an investigation of vertical walls and roofs. But thermography is not as easy as it looks. Successful use of this powerful tool requires knowledge of how to collect and interpret the data.
Envelope Quality Control
Dec. 15, 2021 11 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. EDT
The term "commissioning" is not yet widely used when discussing the envelope quality control process. Yet it is a continuous process, based on clear and well-documented evaluation parameters that have proven themselves. This validation and quality control process begins at design and continues until the occupant comfort is assessed.
