Thermal Bridge Mitigation

Presented By Axy Pagan-Vazquez

Broadcast Date: Monday, November 10, 2014

This webinar is intended to provide a brief background on thermal bridge problems that may occur in the building envelope. Thermal bridges occur when highly conductive building materials provide a thermal path for heat flow that bypasses insulation. Besides causing energy losses through the building envelope, expensive condensation and mold problems may also result. This presentation includes a description of some commonly used basic terminology, tools used to quantify thermal bridges, examples of their occurrences in Army facilities, and several mitigation techniques with step-by-step construction sequencing.
