      Dear Jacqueline McNabb,

      Are you planning to offer your workshop in the Caribbean Region anytime soon?  Alternatively, would it be feasible to offer the same as a series of training modules using a webinar format?

      With best regards,

      Andrew Cutz

      Learn to use the most powerful computer modeling program available, which is the industry standard, for building envelope design and wall and roof hygrothermal analysis.  This hands-on workshop teaches you how to use the standard (beginning) 1-D WUFI-ORNL(R)  and WUFI Pro(R) software to model how heat and moisture affect your wall or roof, both the individual components and the assembly.  Make sure your energy-efficient design does not accumulate moisture.


      This WUFI(R) workshop will be taught by Andre Desjarlais, Program Leader of Building Envelope Materials Research at Oak Ridge National Laboratory and Dr. Achilles Karagiozis, WUFI Developer and Director of Building Science at Owens Corning.

      See how to use WUFI® in conjunction with ASHRAE's New Standard 160, Design Criteria for Moisture Control in Buildings.


      Dr. Achilles Karagiozis and André Desjarlais teach you the best strategies on building envelope design with an emphasis on heat and moisture transfer. 




      • WUFI® workshops can help architects, engineers, building designers, building forensic specialists, manufacturer representatives, facilities managers, IAQ specialists, and other building science professionals.
      • The 2-day hands-on training session is kept at 30 or fewer, to ensure personalized attention.
      • You will receive a copy of WUFI® software; the US Department of Energy provides WUFI-ORNL® for free, and you will receive the commercial WUFI Pro® 5.2 with an 8-week license.
      • You must bring with you a laptop computer and your power supply. You need administrative privileges on your laptop so that you can load the software.
      • You will be walked through every aspect of the modeling sequencing, enabling you to create wall or roof designs that would be most appropriate for the geographical location.
      • You can integrate weather data that has been collected for generations by NOAA, or import weather data from other sources. 
      • The program allows for each wall or roof design to be specifically engineered for its intended location and its orientation on the building site. 
      • Aspects of modeling for new products are demonstrated by both group and individual interaction.
      • You will learn how to export your files and create movies of the simulations.
      • Understand liquid water, vapor transfer, thermal transfer, the effects of humidity, drying, and the cause and elimination of vapor and condensation within walls.  Whether you are building in a hot, humid environment or cold and dry, or mixed because of seasons, this powerful modeling tool uses modern hygrothermal science to model every wall and roof condition in the contiguous USA.
      • You are encouraged to interact and exchange ideas with the professors/instructors, exploring the possibilities of the programs' depth and multiple uses.
      • Point-and-click to:
        • Pick a material.
        • Layer your wall with a huge variety of building materials that can be selected and evaluated simultaneously for the most energy- and thermally-efficient walls.
        • Change walls or roofs using your evaluation instead of materials in the database.
        • Change location or orientation of your building. 



      The workshop provides: 

      • Basic building envelope design principles
      • Heat and mass transfer fundamentals
      • Validation of modern hygrothermal simulation tools
      • Necessary input data:  where can I get them and what accuracy is required?
      • The Do's and Don'ts of WUFI-ORNL® and WUFI Pro®
      • What do the results tell me - performance predicting
      • Mold growth predictions - new post-processing modules
      • Development and future extensions of WUFI-ORNL® and WUFI Pro®, future standards and guidelines
      • You learn the conditions and remedies of moisture, both liquid and vapor, that have had deleterious effects on modern construction.  You are introduced to new material application to eliminate moisture-related problems in buildings, such as mold and decay.
      •  The overview ends with an extensive question-and-answer session that allows the participants to interact informally with the presenters.
      • You will receive a signed Certificate of Completion.
      • Lunches and morning and afternoon breaks are included.



      HOTEL RESERVATIONS:  Registrants will be sent a list of nearby hotels to choose from.
