With this package you can perform thermal analysis of any construction element, windows frames and building structures, in compliance with the relevant norms.
Thermal analysis of the window/wall installation joint
The installation joint of a frame is a border zone between two standards: EN ISO 10077-2 for window and EN 10211 for walls. The two norms provide different methods for the calculation of cavities and assignment of the surface resistances. Additionally, for a precise calculation of the linear transmittance Ψ of the thermal bridge between the frame and the building structure, it is necessary to know the actual Uf transmittance of the frame and Ug of glass.
With Building&Frames package you will be able to perform calculation of frames within Mold Simulator. When calculating a window/wall joint it will be therefore possible:
- to calculate cavities in wall according to ISO 6946 and cavities in frame according to ISO 1077-2
- to automatically apply an increased surface resistance on the internal frame border, as required by ISO 10077-2
- to use the gas library and the calculation functions of the glazing to obtain accurate Ug values and surface temperatures on the glass/frame border
