ASSESSING THERMAL BRIDGES IN COMMERCIAL WALL SYSTEMS
This paper focuses on the methodology developed utilizing the 2-D heat transfer program THERM to more accurately assess the 3-D heat flow from discontinuous bridging elements. Additionally, the research looks at a number of common connection, and compares the calculated U-values to simulation predictions and installed performance using thermal imaging. The paper will focus on both the methodology used, as well as the finding of the research to better comprehend the deviation in thermal performance between design intentions, simulation, and actual performance.
