Computer simulations


Computer simulation is a tool that can be very useful to designers, architects, engineers or other professionals working on building envelopes. Whether at the design stage of a building or when evaluating different options during renovation (addition of insulation or not not, how thick, adding a vapor barrier membrane, inside or outside interventions, etc.), a hygrothermal simulation is the study of water drying or accumulation in a composition of materials over time. It is particularly useful in the prevention of condensation.
