12:00 noon SUMMARY: Thermal Performance of Mass Structures. Approved for one AIA LU HSW. Increased energy efficiency in new and existing construction continue to be a significant factor behind the design decisions we make and materials we specify for our building frames and cladding. The concept of thermal mass has been an integral part of building design and construction for thousands of years – long before building codes were in place. When property executed, incorporating thermal mass into a building design can significantly reduce, or eliminate, the need to heat and cool. Thermal mass absorbs energy slowly and releases energy slowly; conserving energy by minimizing moving loads and cycles of heating and cooling - providing occupants with added thermal comfort. Thermal mass is recognized by the IECC and its benefits are incorporated in software programs commonly used for energy compliance. This presentation illustrates how thermal mass building frames and concrete masonry envelopes meet and exceed minimum code requirements. Concrete building materials are sustainable for generations, and protect against fire, disaster, insects, rot and mold. Architectural concrete masonry materials are beautiful, impressive, and reduce or eliminate the need for periodic maintenance.
LEARNING OBJECTIVES: At the end of the course, participants will understand:
1. The role of thermal mass in building design, increased energy efficiency and comfort.
2. The role R-Values play in the design of building envelopes and code compliance.
3. Design options for complying with the IECC.
4. Methods of controlling air infiltration and exfiltration for increased energy efficiency.
