IBP / Software / WUFI. “WUFI® (Wärme und Feuchte instationär) is a software family which allows realistic calculation of the transient coupled one- and twodimensional heat and moisture transport in multi-layer building components exposed to natural weather. It is based on the newest findings regarding vapour diffusion and liquid transport in building materials and has been validated by detailed comparison with measurements obtained in the laboratory and on IBP’s outdoor testing field.” Advertisements

Predictive Climate Models Now Available for U.K. Energy Simulations – Green building news — Environmental building news – GreenSource

Predictive Climate Models Now Available for U.K. Energy Simulations – Green building news — Environmental building news – GreenSource. “Outside the UK, options are more limited but expanding. The University of Southampton has a free tool called CCWorldWeatherGen that modifies current weather files for any location in the world based on predicted trends—but it uses older climate models than the IES/Exeter files. Elsewhere, research initiatives are under way to generate such future weather files. For more on how climate change should be factored into building design, see “Adapting to Climate Change.” If you have updates on the status of such…
