THERM 2.0: a building component model for steady-state two-dimensional heat transfer

By Charlie Huizenga, Dariush Arasteh, Elizabeth Finlayson, Robin Mitchell, Brent Griffith and Dragan Curcija

Abstract

THERM 2.0 is a state-of-the-art software program, available without cost, that uses the finite-element method to model steady-state, two-dimensional heat transfer problems. It includes a powerful simulation engine combined with a simple, interactive interface and graphic results. Although it was developed primarily to model thermal properties of windows, it is appropriate for other building components such as walls, doors, roofs, and foundations, and is useful for modeling thermal bridges in many other contexts, such as the design of equipment
