Thermal analysis of windows according to ISO 10077-2 and ISO15099
Frame Simulator PRO is a professional tool that allows you to perform complete thermal analysis of windows and curtain walling modules according to the ISO 10077-2:2017 and ISO15099:2003.
It really takes only few minutes to go from your cad drawing, that you can import in the program, to the modelling output. The thermal calculation process is performed in respect of the norm requirements and results are immediately interpretable, thanks to images and graphics of great realism.
In addition to obtaining the Uf thermal transmittance value and the PSI linear transmittance of the spacer, with Frame Simulator is possible to see the the heat flow at each point in the section and to identify the most critical areas requiring improvements.
The program also indicates the condensation risk on the internal frame surface.
With Frame Composer module, supplied with the program, you can calculate the thermal transmittance Uw for complete rectangular windows (frame + glass), from a simple one-sash window to complex fenestrations with multiple sashes. You can even evaluate the contribution of thermal resistance given by curtains and shutters.
In this program are included two calculation modules:
- Frame Simulator module – for the finite element analysis of the frames and for the calculation of the Uf thermal transmittance and PSI value according to ISO 10077-2
- Frame Composer module – for the calculation of Uw thermal transmittance and the additional resistance of internal and external screens
The program is validated according to ISO 10077-2:2017 (calculation of thermal transmittance – Numerical method for frames).
