HygroThermal Modelling

28 May 2024

Building design professionals, such as architects and engineers, now have a valuable resource for improving consistency and accuracy when conducting hygrothermal modelling: FPInnovations’ latest addition to its roster of wood-building construction guides, Hygrothermal Modelling Guide for Wood Buildings.

Hygrothermal modelling is a tool that simulates the movement of heat, vapour, and water through materials under various environmental conditions. Practitioners can use the results of the modelling to fine-tune building envelope assemblies to improve the durability of buildings.

For the simulations to be useful, practitioners should be knowledgeable not only about the modelling software itself but also the related building and material physics. This guide focuses on the key hygrothermal properties of wood building materials, including oriented strand board (OSB), plywood, dimensional lumber, cross-laminated timber (CLT), and rigid wood fibre insulation.
