Specifying Thermal Analysis for Commercial Fenestration Products

BEC
September 11, 2020
12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
Location
Virtual Meeting via Webinar
Posted by Jeff Diqui

AIA CREDIT: Yes

ABSTRACT:

This presentation provides a basic understanding of thermal analysis options for commercial building fenestration and associated envelope construction.  It will touch on project specific options as well as certification options for both simulation and physical testing. 

LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

  1. Understanding standardized energy transmittance ratings and certifications
  2. Understanding the effects of adjacent construction and size as it pertains to energy transmittance of fenestration products
  3. Understanding commonly referenced standardized condensation ratings
  4. Understanding key factors when specifying simulations for surface temperature analyzations (Condensation Risk)
  5. Understanding the benefits of pairing simulations with mock-up test data

PRESENTER BIO: 

Jeff Zibton entered the fenestration industry after 11 years in general construction.  In his 16 years in the building envelope arena, he has gained an understanding of product, mock-up, and field testing, along with consulting experience.  Currently he oversees the physical thermal validation testing, development of project Label Certificates, as well as the coordination and execution of project specific thermal analysis.  He is an NFRC Certified Simulator, NFRC ACE, NFRC IRC, and Member of the NFRC Fenstar Verification Policy Advisory Group.

Brian Sasman started his career in the fenestration industry in 1997 as a test engineer for a predominant window and curtainwall manufacturer.  He spent his time conducting and overseeing in-house and outside laboratory testing activities.  Brian joined QCT in 2005 where he worked to develop a laboratory testing facility focused on evaluating building envelope and fenestration components.  He currently serves as president of QCT.  Brian has BS in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Wisconsin and is an NFRC Certified Simulator and licensed professional engineer in WI, IL and FL.
