Philadelphia WUFI Passive Training
July 17 @ 8:30 am - July 20 @ 5:00 pm EDT$350 - $875
WUFI Passive software, developed by Fraunhofer IBP in partnership with PHIUS and Owens Corning, is the most powerful passive building modeling tool on the market. WUFI Passive offers important capabilities previously unavailable to passive building designers. With this software you can:
- Model your building to meet the PHIUS+ Certification performance standard.
- Access WUFI Passive’s built-in hygrothermal modeling capabilities and toggle between static and dynamic modeling modes.
- Generate polished reports for clients and certification documentation.
Even if you only use WUFI Passive in static mode, you’ll get the modeling capabilities you’re already familiar with, plus a sophisticated graphical user interface, multi-zone modeling, and 3D import from SketchUp (and in the near future also from REVIT and other tools). WUFI Passive also allows for copying and retaining of multiple optimization cases for comparison and automated professional reports of all the data that you need to communicate to your client. With WUFI Passive it’s easy to toggle between metric and IP anytime during the process.
WUFI Passive (Static Modeling)
WUFI Passive static is the energy model used for PHIUS+ Certification compliance. This workshop is intended both for those learning WUFI Passive for the first time, and as a refresher for users who wish to sharpen their skills. This in-class instruction session includes both tutorial style training as well as instructor-guided modeling completed by each student. A sample single family and multi-family project will be modeled according to PHIUS+ Certification protocols.
Advanced WUFI Plus (Dynamic Modeling)
The training focuses on both the dynamic and hygrothermal modeling capabilities of WUFI Plus. The in-class session includes tutorial style training as well as hands-on group work using WUFIplus to solve unique project-specific questions suggested by students and presenting findings to the class. Dynamic modeling is recommended on projects when comfort and heating need to be assessed, cooling/moisture loads are high, heating set-points vary significantly throughout the heating period, or occupancy and indoor conditions vary considerably.
These trainings qualify for 1 AIA HSW and 1 CPHC CEU per hour of instruction.
Schedule – Register for Static Modeling only, Dynamic Modeling only, or both!
