WUFI-ORNL/IBP< is based on the newest findings regarding vapour diffusion and liquid transport in building materials.
WUFI-ORNL/IBP< only requires standard material properties and easy-to-determine moisture storage and liquid transport functions.
WUFI-ORNL/IBP< can use measured weather data - including driving rain and solar radiation - as boundary conditions, thus allowing realistic investigations on the behaviour of the component under exposure to natural weather.
WUFI-ORNL/IBP< can be used for assessing
WUFI-ORNL/IBP< is a tool for developing and optimising building materials and components. For example, it was used as a development tool for the smart vapour retarder.
WUFI-ORNL/IBP< is directed at manufacturers of building products, consultants, designers, engineering offices and experts in the field of hygrothermics.
WUFI-ORNL/IBP< may be used as a teaching aid or advertising tool because of the instructive visualisation of its calculation results.
WUFI-ORNL/IBP< runs on PCs under Windows 3.1x, 95/98 and NT. The comprehensive on-line help and documentation amounts to ca. 200 A4 pages; printed short
instructions are included. WUFI is available in a German or an English version.
Proper application of WUFI requires experience in the field of hygrothermics and some basic knowledge in the use of numerical calculation methods.
