Thermal Bridging – Reading List

Thermal Bridging – Reading List

Summary: Thermal bridging occurs when heat passes over or through insulation by traveling along a more conductive part of the assembly, for example a steel stud. Heat loss due to thermal bridging can be significant. The problem of thermal bridging still unfortunately exists in many projects, although it has become much better-known and good solutions […]

Development of a New Hot Box Apparatus to Measure Building Enclosure Thermal Performance

Development of a New Hot Box Apparatus to Measure Building Enclosure Thermal Performance

By: Chris Schumacher, Dave Ober, John Straube, and Aaron Grin. Abstract: R-value is an effective, well established, and widely accepted metric for describing the thermal performance of building insulation materials but it is an incomplete metric for describing the thermal performance of building enclosure assemblies. In practice, many building designers have directly applied insulation R-value […]
