This seminar will outline recent changes in building energy codes and how these changes could impact the long range durability of the building enclosure.
The seminar is divided into 3 sections: 1. The first section is a brief summary of recent changes in North America energy codes. The discussion is focused on the opaque building envelope criteria and the changes in wall assembly design as a result of energy code requirements. 2. The second section is a brief review of moisture analysis tools for building envelope design 3. The final section will provide examples of moisture analysis for typical framed walls. Moisture problems & moisture management strategies depend on climate and wall design and WUFI analysis must be climate specific. The US climates can be grouped into 3 broad categories: Cold climates (cz 5-8); Warm-Hot Humid climates (cz 1A-4A); Marine climates (4-5C). Section 3 is divided into 3A, 3B and 3C, to provide examples of the 3 climate types and to customize the presentation for regional needs
