Suite of heat and mass transfer programs:

  • 2-D /3-D steady state heat transfer for building details, thermal bridges, window frames and enclosures: TRISCO, BISCO, SOLIDO

  • 2-D /3-D transient heat transfer for ground heat losses, building junctions, thermal capacity effect, fire engineering: BISTRA, VOLTRA.

  • improved Glaser method for vapour transfer, condensation, and drying: GLASTA.

  • multi-zone transient heat transfer for heating, cooling, overheating, sunscreens, and passive solar energy: CAPSOL.

Expertise Required: 

A basic knowledge about heat and mass transfer is sufficient for most programs, but a knowledge in depth of heat transfer mechanisms is helpful to solve complex problems.

Audience: 

Universities and (building) research institutes,

consulting firms (building physics, architecture, engineering),

building industry (manufacturers of insulation, glazings, window frames, building components).

Input: 

See web site for input requirements of individual programs.
