Reduced Prices for WUFI® Plus and WUFI® Passive in our online shop! – Extended until end of January 2018!

Prices for WUFI® Plus and WUFI® Passive are reduced by 20% in our online shop until Black Friday. There will be a rebate of 10% until the end of the year. January 31, 2018

WUFI® Plus is the most complete heat and moisture simulation tool in the WUFI® software family. In addition to simulating hygrothermal conditions in building components, WUFI® Plus simulates the indoor environment and is therefore suitable for addressing comfort and energy consumption in buildings.

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
