Hygric and Thermal Simulation

Presentation at the International Timber Construction Forum

Invited by the Berne University of Applied Sciences I was able to speak at the 22nd  International Timber Construction Forum in Garmisch-Partenkirchen (Germany) with a presentation on “Summertime overheating risks and climate change”.Starting with a focus on thermal mass and the influence of construction types I tried to broaden the topic to a more general approach, covering climate change issues, the summerly heat balance of buildings, solar gains and natural cooling. Of course, the presentation included some dynamic simulation videos and calculations processed with HTflux…
