    ASHRAE standard 160 mold criteria now available in WUFI® Mold Index VTT

    The WUFI® Mold Index VTT postprocessor now contains the mold growth criteria according to the ASHRAE standard 160. These allow for a differentiation between four different sensitivity and material specific mold decline classes. The mold risk evaluation is assisted by a traffic light scheme which indicates uncritical conditions with green and clearly critical ones with red.

    Moisture in buildings – Highly relevant all over the world

    Moisture management in buildings is a trending topic, as moisture related problems not only affect old buildings, but energy efficient new ones as well. In the United States, roughly 50% of all households reported the prevalence of dampness and mold.  European households discovered these same issues, reporting them in about 20% of households.

    The Fraunhofer Institute for Building Physics IBP has conducted research in this field for many years, and is dedicated to solving to these problems by providing software, experience, and solutions to organizations such as ASHRAE (American Society of Heating, Refrigerating, and Air-Conditioning Engineers). With contributions of Fraunhofer experts, a new chapter on moisture management in buildings was developed for ASHRAE’s Handbook of Fundamentals.

    Research projekt "Climate models" completed!

    The higher the insulation level of a building component is the less heat is available for its drying. As a consequence of the better airtightness of the building envelope, in addition the indoor air humidity increases. Both together require also higher demands on the moisture protection of the building components. This is increasingly verified by means of a hygrothermal simulations like WUFI®. These methods need appropriate indoor and outdoor climate data. To close the existing gaps, as part of a research project the following topics were investigated

    Information on the planned release of WUFI® Pro 6

    150x105_News_Pro-6-ReleaseIn spring 2016 we will release the new version of our hygrothermal simulation software WUFI® Pro 6. The most important new features and improvements include:

     

    • New, more stable and faster kernel
    • New climate menu which allows to pick the location from the globe, additional analysis of the climate files and possibility to plot courses of all climatic elements contained
    • New database for custom climates which can be made accessible also on the map
    • New interface for the material database with tree structure, comfortable search function and new possibilities to manage the user data!
    • WUFI® Graph for evaluation of the results allows a direct comparison of different cases within the same diagram, the comparison of 1D and 2D simulation results and the evaluation of average conditions over several grid elements - also for the relative humidity. This also allows for an evaluation of timber structures according to the new WTA guideline 6-8 with its requirements for transient wood decay evaluation.
