This tool calculates characteristic indicators for the construction, such as linear (or point) thermal transmittance or the matrix of thermal coupling coefficients (i.e. boundary conditions independent results). AnTherm facilitates generation of geometrical models through a graphic input display of building structures, as well as by providing very fast, fully automated generation and precise solution of the underlying numerical model. AnTherm allows the user to control the precision of numerical solutions through parameters.

  AnTherm provides totally new capabilities for evaluating building envelope elements or even whole buildings with particular attention to thermal bridges and (optionally) vapour diffusion. It provides modern three dimensional visualization functionality speeding up the complex evaluation process in terms of qualitative research followed by quantitative (numerical) analysis of results.

Entitled “IGCC: Safe and Sustainable By the Book,” the initiative is committed to develop a model code focused on new and existing commercial buildings. It will focus on building design and performance. The Code Council’s development timeline will include public meetings of the Sustainable Building Technology Committee (SBTC), a public comment period on the Committee’s initial draft, and a final draft that will be made available in 2010 as a resource document before it moves through the development hearing and final action hearing stages.
