CSI West & Northwest Bi-Region Conference: Science of Water
May 19, 2017 at 10:30 am - 11:30 am UTC+0
Stéphane Hoffman, Senior Building Science Specialist and Vice President, will be presenting Science of Water at this year’s CSI West & Northwest Bi-Regional Conference. The session will take place at 10:30 a.m. on Day 2 of the three-day conference.
Through a series of case studies, we will explore how advances in hygrothermal modeling can be used to more accurately predict the performance of buildings and their enclosure systems.
From basic fluid dynamic simulations to quantify the rain flow down a facade system or complex roof geometry to more complex fluid dynamic studies of air flow within curtain wall shadow boxes, learn how new modeling techniques can help design teams answer performance questions in the design process.
Other case studies will look at how multiple modeling techniques can be used to model the complex interaction within systems such as the impact of rainwater draining through a podium assembly or assess structural and thermal performance simultaneously to assess the optimum cladding support system. A final case studies will demonstrate how graphical interfaces can be adapted to more easily present the findings of parametric studies involving multiple factors and assist the design team to make informed decisions early in the design process.
