Advanced Thermal Bridge Calculations - online course


Modelling a thermal bridge in Flixo is relatively easy; understanding when there is a need to model, what to draw and how to quantitatively interpret the results requires more experience. 

Join Jessica Eyers for a thorough exploration of these topics!

This course is for people with pre-existing thermal bridge and Passive House modelling exposure.



The course will cover:
  • Review of thermal bridging and thermal breaks in a Passive House and BAU context;
  • Modelling of a selection of junction details using typical construction methods (as per High-Performance Handbook);
  • Modification of these details to explore the impact on performance;
  • Thermal bridge modelling as a design tool.
Homework will be set and reviewed at each session.

When: Monthly, second Thursday of the month, starting 10 August 2023, 6-8pm for 4 consecutive months
Course fee: NZ$ 920, inclusive of 15% GST; PHINZ member discounts apply.

Specific requirements: A (trial) download of Flixo (the typical Flixo trial period can be extended for participants to cover the duration of the course) and proficiency in CAD.

Prerequisites: This is not a course for beginners. You need to be using PHPP and have already been introduced to thermal bridges to enjoy this course.
