Wells Webinar: Thermal Mass, Energy Codes, and Precast Concrete
September 2 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
This presentation reviews thermal testing options for materials and assemblies, including a review of thermal test results and how they apply to current energy codes. Participants will also learn about the benefits of thermal mass (thermal inertia) and how these benefits are recognized in national energy codes. This presentation will provide an overview of compliance paths of these energy codes. Additionally, the degradation of the R-value of concrete panels with metal thermal bridges that pass through the insulation will be explained.
