Review of Hygrothermal Models of Building Envelope Retrofit Analysis
CMHC supports research on the durability of building envelope assemblies, with a concern that additions of insulation and air/vapour barriers to existing wall assemblies do not adversely impact their performance. The commercial availability of appropriate computerized hygrothermal modeling tools is thus extremely important to this research. This study revealed that of some 45 such tools known to exist, only a handful met the criteria for general use by architects and engineers in the housing industry. Indeed, only a couple (MATCH and WUFI) were deemed suitable for further research, and all have some limitations.
